ABOUT THE FILM:
Local filmmakers Lourdes Kalusha-Aguirre and Marlo Angell capture the story of La Yarda, the housing unit built for Mexican American railroad workers from 1920-51. This 15minute film shares memories by former residents and reveals the lasting impact this special place continues to have on the cultural identity of Lawrence, Kansas.
