Shot on location in San Francisco's Mission District, the award-winning QUALITY OF LIFE tells an authentic and gripping story of two young graffiti writers whose friendship and lives unravel after they get arrested.
From Seattle to Stockholm, Berlin to San Francisco, Quality of Life has made its mark on film festivals around the world. Directed by self-taught filmmaker and former Santa Cruz resident, Benjamin Morgan, and co-written with childhood friend, Santa Cruz High grad, and lead actor of the film, Brian Burnam, Quality of Life tells the story of two San Francisco graffiti writers grappling between the passion for their craft and the consequences that come with it.
The film opened in NYC, LA and San Francisco, in addition to a number of other cities.
The filmmakers will be in attendance.
