PEOPLE LIVE HERE was shot between fall 2010 and summer 2012 as my thesis for a MA in Social Documentation. I made this film after living near Cesar Chavez Street for over 12 years and watching the changes- both positive and negative- brought on by the converging forces of a push for livable streets and the tech booms and busts that are reshaping the city. It couldn't have been made without the assistance of friends, loved ones, the Social Documetary program at UCSC, grants from Porter College, the Florence French Scholarship, and of course, the people that live and create community in San Francisco Mission and Bernal Heights neighborhoods.
