In a neighborhood lacking sidewalks, generations of East Austin students struggle for a safe route to school.

For more than 50 years, neighborhood leaders say, students on their way to Eastside Memorial High School have carved paths through the wooded greenbelt, crossing creeks and railroad tracks in an effort to get to school.

Filmmakers Carra Martinez and filmmaker Deborah S. Esquenazi engaged students to tell story of dangerous route they take to school.

The short documentary, “La Loma (Or The Place Sometimes Called Hungry Hill),” premieres this weekend as part of the Fusebox performance festival.
