The Backyard Film Series –
September 11 – September 13
As a part of the Backyard Film Series,
Hayti Heritage Film Festival presents
a special online screening of the documentary ALICE STREET by Spencer Wilkinson
Two artists form an unlikely partnership to paint their most ambitious mural to date in Oakland’s downtown, ground zero for gentrification. The mural is dedicated to the diverse cultural artists that intersect on the corner, who are threatened by displacement. As the mural paint dries, a luxury condo is planned that will obstruct the art and cultural history. The community decides to fight back.
Following the screening will be a Q+A with director Spencer Wilkinson, and featured artists/organizers Eric Arnold and Lailan Sandra Huen. Moderated by Angel Dozier of BeConnected and the Hayti Heritage Film Festival/ Hayti Heritage Center.
