SFUFF 2018 / 90 minsBe sure to bring your bus fare as our journey will begin with “Hotel 22”, a short film about bus line 22, a frequent destination for the homeless population of Silicon Valley. The “Snow Mountain” film tells the story of a mother and her son dreaming of a better life while they spend the night “camping”. Told from the point of view of a child, and shot with a handycam, “Crisanto Street” provides a hopeful look into the joyful life of young Geovany and his family. “Angel in the Alley” introduces us to the faithful presence of Albertino Garcia who overlooks and protects Olive alley. Finally, the “Viva House” film weaves a story of neighbors uniting to support each other. In a time when extremes of wealth and poverty, these films highlight the value of housing, home, and community.
