Urban life turns into urban art.

A behind the scenes look showing how the neighborhoods of Chicago came together to make Adios Vaya Con Dios. It is impressive that a neighborhood actually pulled this off. Churches began creating their own films, most notably Fireproof (2008), but I haven't heard of an urban neighborhood unifying to accomplish movie-making. This film in particular doesn't associate it self with any religious institution or film organization, rather Executive Producer Mónica Esmeralda León using her backyard as a social construct for storytelling the beauties and tragedies of where she is from.

The documentary labeled 'La Raza when we unite,' also shows the non-actors from the neighborhoods that joined in the effort working with the actual professional actors. Narrated by Zachary Laoutides, he takes you on a history lesson, behind the meaning of 'La Raza' as the film's directorial title was dedicated to the community in which it was filmed. You follow Zachary's voice through the gangland territories of where the film was shot reflecting the realism of the mean streets.

Most interestingly is the soundtrack of the film as musicians from the United Kingdom and rock bands from México joined in having the ability to give the film a very different vibe not typically found in the urban genre.
