Synopsis

"Los Angeles Now" focuses on the growth of L.A.'s ethnic diversity (Hispanics are becoming the majority of its population), how it's affecting the city's culture and where it might lead. Filmmaker Phillip Rodriguez's edgy and atmospheric piece of urban pulse-taking includes comments from a number of local writers, activists, and business and religious leaders. And it includes this assessment from one of the members of the Korean-American rap group Uptown 3000: "You blend into everything."
