ALICE STREET

Directed by Spencer Wilkinson
67 minutes

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 who are threatened by displacement to justify “progress”. As the mural dries, a luxury condo building is approved by the City Council even though it will completely obstruct the art that portrays the vast cultural history of Oakland. The community of artists, dancers, activists decide to fight back. An inspiring, beautiful documentary that not only reveals the richness of Oakland’s diversity and arts but lays testament to the need to fight for what is valuable.
