Story Line

Mi Vida Loca (also known as My Crazy Life) is a 1993 American drama film directed and written by Allison Anders, produced by Cineville. It centers on the plight of cholas (and their male counterparts, cholos) growing up in the Echo Park section of Los Angeles, who face the struggles of friendship, romantic entanglements, motherhood & gang membership.

At the time of filming, most of the cast was made up of unknown actors, some of whom were actual gang members from Echo Park. It also includes the first film appearances from Salma Hayek and Jason Lee, in small roles.
