“Living on the Dime” tells the story of families living along Interstate 10 whose livers were changed by the construction of the longest freeway in the United States. “Living on the Dime” was produced and directed by Redlands native Antonio Gonzalez Vasquez. Vasquez is currently at work on a book and documentary video “Mexican Americans in Redlands.” A photo exhibit and presentation ‘Mexican Heritage of Inland Southern California' will accompany the films. Antonio Gonzalez Vasquez’s work as a documentary historian & filmmaker has focused on issues of cultural and ethnic identity, environmental and social justice, migration, and community development. Mr. Vasquez founded Inland Mexican Heritage in 2001 to promote community-based scholarship and continue research and development of media projects and archive materials.
