We take a closer look at all the bills that have passed the California legislature this week. Plus, we chat with El Norte director Gregory Nava, on the 35th anniversary of the classic film. And, we visit Inglewood to sample some of its restaurant offerings.

State of Affairs

Take Two recaps the bills that passed the state house this week and are now poised on Governor Newsom’s desk. Plus, the latest stories from the state capital on our weekly round-up of politics. 

Guest:

El Norte

The plot from the 1982 film, El Norte, could be ripped from the headlines of today. A pair of indigenous teens from Guatemala journey north to try and seek refuge in the United States. The film was a huge success and highlighted the plight of migrants from Latin America. On its 35th anniversary, we discuss the film's all-too-real relevance and how Latinos are still struggling to have their stories heard in Hollywood.
