It Takes The Hood to Save The Hood

Directed by Harvey Magsaysay Lozada

“IT TAKES THE HOOD TO SAVE THE HOOD” is a documentary short created in partnership with San Francisco-based violence prevention and youth development organization UNITED PLAYAZ. This project explores UNITED PLAYAZ’s role in developing a coalition with community-based organizations in San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMA) neighborhood and providing mutual aid to those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. See firsthand how local s/heros continue to adapt and respond to the community’s needs while processing how the pandemic has personally affected them.
