Straight Outta Hunters Point - doc
Date Thursday May 16
Time 9:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location Details
Fine arts Cinema Shattuck @ Haste
Event Type Screening
An award winning documentary by first time filmmaker Kevin Epps, Straight Outta Hunters Point is a stark and gripping 75 minute true story. A portrait of a black ghetto that has been environmentally sacrificed and economically redlined out of the path of prosperity in one of America's wealthiest cities, San Francisco. Plagued by youth violence, high unemployment and drugs, community elders seem helpless while confronting the pervasive morass of social ills. Meanwhile youths dodge bullets and cling to hopes of Rap stardom. 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. Please contact us at for more info visit the website @ to see the online trailer, read up on the project, the community and sample the soundtrack featuring over a dozen of the Bay Area's raw underground hip hop artists. Thank You For Your Time...
