SF IndieFest: THE AREA

February 10 only

THE AREA is an eye-opening saga of resistance in a South Side Chicago neighborhood, where more than 400 African-American families are being displaced by a multi-billion dollar railroad company. The film follows a homeowner-turned-activist, who puts off her plans to move; instead, she digs in to become an ad hoc community organizer and be “the last house standing.”

Directed by David Schalliol. 93 min. Documentary. USA. 2018.
