Digital Gym On The Blvd Presents: Los Sures says
The Digital Gym on the Blvd is an on-going film series highlighting films that speak directly to issues affecting San Diego residents. Each screening will feature a guest speaker and discussion opportunities. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

LOS SURES is an unforgettable documentary filmed in the 1980’s that depicts the vibrant Latino communities living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn before gentrification.

Diego Echeverria’s film skillfully represents the challenges residents of the Southside faced: poverty, drugs, gang violence, crime, abandoned real estate, racial tension, single-parent homes, and inadequate local resources. The complex portrait also celebrates the vitality of this largely Puerto Rican and Dominican community, showing the strength of their culture, their creativity, and their determination to overcome a desperate situation. Beautifully restored for the 30th anniversary premiere at the New York Film Festival, this documentary is an invaluable piece of New York City history.

Critic Quotes: “Trenchant and eye-opening.”– The Hollywood Reporter
“An authenticity that has been captured by no fiction film I’ve ever seen.”– L.A. Weekly
“Both an invaluable record of pre-gentrification Brooklyn and an ode to a community’s resilience.” – BAMcinéma
