  1. Street Art as Political Currency

    SFUFF 2018 / 120 mins
    Murals are a powerful form of art that expose us to beauty while oftentimes critiquing political and social conditions. The act of painting murals often brings people together through a sense of affinity and shared purpose, while at the same time offering challenges to regimes of power, expressing dissent, of simply revealing alternate points of view. This program is collection of shorts focusing on visual and graphic art in the public realm as a way of expressing and cultivating social capital; and will explore how mural artists around the world are engaged in a practice that provokes and unites.

    In This Program: Not With Fire, but with Paint, Painting the Town, Concrete Canvas, The Dream Kontinues

  2. Warm Souls, Cold World

    SFUFF 2018 / 90 mins
    Be 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.

    In This Program: The Angel in the Alley, Crisanto Street, Hotel 22, Snow Mountain, Viva House

  4. The City That Holds Us

    SFUFF 2018 / 150 mins
    On-line ticket sales will end at 4pm. Tickets will be available at the door at SPUR starting at 5:30pm today. All people who define themselves as New Yorkers, Tel-Avivians or Montréalais have some things in common with others who hold the same self-definition. But that sense of belonging does not necessarily compromise other affinities. How do some cities enable a multitude of identities and coexistence? The short films in this program explore identity in the city, including the unique approach of the documentary short film "#6261" on strangers-neighbors who share a relationship with this number in Montreal, and "Life-Sized City - Episode 5:Tel-Aviv", exploring a city in conflict through grassroots urban initiatives that transcend religious, political and class boundaries.

    In This Program: Life-Sized City – Episode 5: Tel Aviv, #6261, Al Ghorba, Life in Gray, The New York Woman
