Premiere of “People Live Here,” a Film About Cesar Chavez Street

1:14 PM PDT on August 19, 2013

People Live Here, a 22-minute documentary about Cesar Chavez Street by Susie Smith, is making its debut Sunday, September 1, at the Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema. The free showing takes place in Precita Park at Folsom. Music starts at 6 pm, but the films don't get going until 7:45 (like when it gets dark, duh).
Bundle up, bring a chair or blanket, and come see this fascinating account of our favorite street, featuring history, interviews with local residents and the St. Anthony's priest, and penetrating analysis.

People Live Here (22 mins)           Susannah Smith
After years of community pressure and coalition building, city departments have joined together to start a historic ”livable streets” retrofit of Cesar Chavez, a busy San Francisco thoroughfare. Will this newest change help the area’s residents or is greening the new method for displacement? PEOPLE LIVE HERE looks at 70+ years of the street’s history in an attempt to answer these questions.
