Registration Required A new documentary that traces the origins and history of lowriding in San Diego
by Alberto López Pulido
“Everything Comes From the Streets” features the lives and voices of the pioneers of the lowrider movement in the borderlands of San Diego and Tijuana that brought forth a unique Chicana and Chicano lowrider aesthetic and expression.
This documentary challenges past interpretations of the California Lowrider Scene that has been dominated by lowrider history from Los Angeles and instead highlights the importance of Jacket Clubs, Car Customizers, the U.S.-Mexico border, women, the Chicano Movement and the establishment of Chicano Park in the history of Chicano San Diego that brought forth a unique lowrider story and movement for California history and the American Southwest.
“Everything Comes From the Streets” is funded by Cal Humanities, the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of San Diego, and Via International. The film is directed by Alberto Pulido and co-produced with Rigo Reyes and Kelly Whalen.
