Masa Revolution is a documentary about how inexpensive Mexican street food inspired a pop-culture gourmet phenomenon.
The film captures the two faces of L.A.’s food truck scene: Spanish-speaking immigrants and food-savvy hipsters. The industry is split along cultural, social and economic lines. It’s also run by a singular set of laws.
City and county politicians are buckling down on food truck regulations. The film explores those changes and how some business owners and restaurant operators are dealing with the prominent presence and sudden competition of mobile food vendors.
