STRAIGHT OUTTA HUNTERS POINT 2
March 31 only
DIRECTOR KEVIN EPPS WILL JOIN US AFTER THE SCREENING FOR A SPECIAL Q&A.
Franciscans, even long-time residents, have never spent even 5 minutes in the notorious, conveniently isolated neighborhood known as Hunters Point. Located south-east of Potrero Hill, Bayview Hunter’s Point is San Francisco’s black ghetto that has for decades been ravaged by devastating violence, drug use and poverty. This is the much anticipated follow up to 2003’s groundbreaking, and widely acclaimed documentary that presented often disturbing, sometimes hilarious, always engaging street-level glimpses of an area most city residents avoid at any cost. In this completely new film Epps reveals anew, with the unrelenting eye of an embedded war journalist, the present state of the community that he still calls home.
Directed Kevin Epps, USA, 2012
Digital presentation. 80 mins.
