SF Urban Film Fest 2017 Film Screening Event

Catch a rare screening of the film “Drugs in the Tenderloin” and witness stories of «outcasts» flocking to the Tenderloin for sanctuary starting in the early 1960s (even before the Summer of Love which was centered in the Haight/Ashbury District). The second film, «Tender Souls», by local filmmaker Brenton Gieser, about three Tenderloin residents current stories of struggle and redemption, makes us reflect on our own fragility and strength.

The Tenderloin Museum, as the film screening venue is appropo, as under the direction of Katie Conry, its exhibits bring the neighborhood’s history to life to bring greater appreciation of how the area has changed and yet not changed at all. Film screening followed by discussion with the Director of Tenderloin Museum and «Drugs in the Tenderloin» filmmaker.
