‘Loisada’ means ‘Lower East Side’ in New York slang. It’s also the name of the neighborhood where the community garden at Avenue C is located. The director filmed this garden throughout different seasons at a time when she was a community gardener. Far from being a didactic documentary, her film is a personal experience, plastic, sonorous and poetic.
