Roots in Resilience Film Festival

 We are all future ancestors. What will you want to preserve? The queer dimensions of San Francisco—a city culturally unique and multigenerational—holds wisdom. Gentrification is affecting people's sense of place and belonging and pulls away cultures of rootedness.

Roots in Resilience Film Festival showcases how people from communities of color in San Francisco claim agency to the places they call home. The festival displays the work of artists, youth, residents and community members who explore intergenerational blessings in their communities. In order to understand blessings, they fearlessly attempt to also recognize struggle. Festival includes experimental, narrative and documentary shorts--all voice the power of rootedness. Our roots.
