Las Chicas y Chicos de Blossom Street is an animated poem written by Araceli Esparza (me!) in which she lovingly revisits memories and weaves tales about a diverse Latino community of family-like neighbors living close together in apartments on Blossom Street.
Life in this neighborhood is communicated through the narration of a little girl named Luz, and the photographs and journals she keeps. About the Animation Brought to life by Steve Dorchester (art & animation) and Beauxregard Neylon (audio design), the richly-packed narrative has a lot of ground to cover as the lives of these numerous characters co-mingle and intertwine. Like a dream, the depicted vignettes may encapsulate the bustling activity of a single day, along Summer, or a Lifetime.
