Artist Desi Mundo (@crpbayarea) and filmmaker Spencer Wilkinson (https://vimeo.com/endangeredideas) join Dap (@dapisdope) on this episode to talk about their documentary, Alice Street. The film covers the fight to preserve the cultural heritage of the historic Malonga Center for the Arts and Hotel Oakland, a building that traditionally services low-income Asian-American seniors.
Topics on this episode include: gentrification, preserving the arts in Oakland, the process of making a documentary about artists, the history of Oakland’s creative and cultural scene, and more.
To meet our guests, see performers from the Malonga Center, and view a short film on Alice Street, check out their event during the Matatu Festival of Stories on October 13th. Details here: http://www.matatufestival.org/alice-street/
