The San Francisco International Arts Festival unveiled its first television program made as part of a series called “In Diaspora: I.D. for the New Majority.” The series focuses on the “ramifications of the shifting demographics of the United States electorate” and it zeroes in on the housing crisis in the Mission.
The program was shot on Oct. 5 at Galeria de la Raza and the Red Poppy Art House.
“We hope you find the results interesting and thought-provoking as we all struggle with the issues of affordable housing, no-fault evictions and gentrification that will determine the future direction of San Francisco and who gets to live here,” wrote Andrew Wood, executive director of the S.F. International Arts Festival, in an email about the new program.
