Reviews

"Though 'Boston’s Latin Quarter' has served as a powerful tool to advocate for the neighborhood, it also illustrates the importance of having a cultural space." — Celina Colbu, The Bay State Banner

"In the documentary, the director examines issues such as the strengths of the immigrant communities, Latinx entrepreneurs, the role of Afro-Latin Arts/Culture, place-keeping, and problems of crime, violence and gentrification." — Jamaica Plain News
