SF Urban Film Fest: Culture of Resistance Versus Culture Vultures*
Friday, February 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
SF Urban Film Fest and SOMA Pilipinas Cultural District present film shorts and a panel to spark discussion on how different grass-roots organizations, in San Francisco and Los Angeles, have used arts and culture to promote community preservation and self-determination. We will also explore the potential risks of this strategy including issues of the commodification of people’s culture and the attraction of speculative investment leading to displacement of communities.
Co-Presented by SOMA Pilipinas
Raquel Redondiez, Executive Director, SOMA Pilipinas Cultural District
Grant Sunoo, Director of Planning, Little Tokyo Service Center
Josué Rojas, Executive Director, Acción Latina
Curated by Raquel Redondiez, SOMA Pilipinas, and Fay Darmawi
