After the “Lowrider Lawyers: Putting a City on Trial” event on Sunday, January 3, 2016, many people shared with me that it was the best event they have ever experienced in their entire lives. Perhaps the most powerful comment comes from veterana OG activist La Mesha Irrizary: I had not set a foot in a movie theater for the past 14 years, since SFPD killed my son at the Metreon, I am glad I got over my fear and came to the premiere !!

Before the film premiere of “Lowrider Lawyers: Putting a City on Trial,” director Ben Bac Sierra, poet Margarita Bac Sierra, and politically conscious iconic rappers Dregs One and Equipto performed for the packed audience at this unprecedented event at the Brava Theater in San Francisco’s Mission district. After the screening there was a community discussion panel including Roberto Hernandez, Edwin Lindo, Adante Pointer, and Thea Matthews.

Thanks to all who made this experience possible.

Now I present to you critical reviews of the film, case, and event:
