A feature documentary film orchestrating the launch of a Universal Basic Income for a city in the US. In a country out of balance, this film explores a path forward and offers ideas like economic security, ending the cycle of poverty, creating true freedom to do what you love in life, focusing on community instead of the individual, moving away from GDP and other related antiquated measurements of success by evolving our social contract and social values.
Over the course of five years we created ten films about homelessness. We began to see some patterns emerging and wanted to explore solutions to the issues around economic insecurity, lack of work freedom, racial injustice and cycles of poverty. We launched the Economic Justice Project to understand these issues and explore ways to create change through policy and community building.
We not only show what makes this area so unique, but also raise awareness around the plight of the Maldivian people, and start a broader conversation about how together – as a global community – we can take action on the generational issue of our time.
In collaboration with Walking Cinema we helped produce Museum of the Hidden City, An immersive journey into San Francisco's 80-year affordable housing experiment.
It is an interactive media project that explores the history of affordable housing from multiple perspectives. The upcoming interactive website and series of mobile-guided walking tours will take audiences deep into the lives and landscapes of four people who have completely different--but geographically overlapping--experiences of affordable housing in San Francisco.
20% of students at Bessie Carmichael in San Francisco are homeless!! This project focuses on unhoused nieghbors in San Francisco's SoMa neighborhood to express our deep belief that the path for designing stronger communities is to: 1. Tell stories that clearly articulate community issues through the art of film, and 2. Cultivate an environment and process that engages the community and gives residents an equal seat at table.
