Organizer/AuthorKevin Epps
It is a stark cinematic portrait of a neglected community struggling to survive amidst gang violence, environmental issues and economic decline in one of the world's wealthiest cities. Set against the backdrop of a vibrant Hip Hop subculture, this raw and gripping film depicts a spirited black ghetto confronting harsh realities. Where: Berkeley's Fine Arts Cinema 2451 Shattuck @ Haste in Berkeley CA This is an opportunity to see the documentary film by first time director Kevin Epps that has garnered acclaim via previous one off screenings at independent film festivals around the U.S. It returns by popular demand to the Bay Area after a weekend of sold out shows in February @ Berkeley's Fine Arts Cinema and San Francisco's Red Vic. Winner of the audience choice award at SF's Black Film Festival, Straight Outta Hunters Point was recognized by the San Francisco Bay Guardian with a Goldie Outstanding Local Discovery award last November. Recently Epps has presented the film in an educational outreach role at high schools, colleges and universities including UCLA, Sonoma State, and UC Berkeley. Since screenings at festivals in Santa Fe NM, Park City UT and elsewhere, the director, in association with Berkeley based editor Josh Callaghan have retooled the film to a taught 75 minute cut. S.O.H.P will be screening each night for a full week at 9:15 p.m in Berkeley beginning Friday May 10th - 17th at The Fine Arts Cinema. This is also a good time to visit the Fine Arts Cinema before it closes in June for a construction project that will darken the theater until 2004. The film will also show again at San Francisco's Red Vic Moviehouse May 23rd - 27th and for one showing in San Rafael's Film Center on May 29th. Director Kevin Epps will appear at selected screenings including the May 2nd Press Screening @ 2 p.m in Berkeley and on KPIX News this evening ( April 30) at 11 p.m. Please contact us at for more info visit the website @ to see the online trailer, read up on the project and sample the soundtrack featuring over a dozen of the Bay Area's newest underground hip hop artists.
