Inside Hotel Iroquois Screening

SEE EVENT DETAILS
This short documentary tells the story of a 2019 Skywatchers collaboration with residents and staff of Hotel Iroquois, a Community Housing Partnership property. The six-month process of sharing stories and discussing living conditions culminated in an intimate, guided performance called Inside Hotel Iroquois. Small groups of visitors were welcomed into the SRO by residents to hear poetry, songs, and stories both ordinary and surprising, human and heroic.

This screening will be followed by a Q & A with Hotel Iroquois residents DT Fields, Enetra Dunne, and Rachel Wallace to discuss the dynamics and significance of supportive housing. A look at conditions inside this SRO was timely when we first created the film; now, when so many of our neighbors are forced to live in very close quarters and when services are scarce to non-existent, this work and the ensuing dialogue become that much more urgent.

About Skywatchers:

Skywatchers began in 2011 in the tenant lounge of the Senator Hotel, a Tenderloin SRO, and has since grown into an enduring creative collaboration between professional artists and residents of San Francisco's Tenderloin District. The work is multidisciplinary, radically inclusive, and structured on the belief that relationships are the first site of social change. Together we amplify the rich and complex stories, life experiences, and talents of community members and place those stories strategically in the civic discourse.

ABD Productions initiated the Skywatchers program in collaboration with Community Housing Partnership (CHP) and the Luggage Store Gallery.

Free to Tenderloin residents | Suggested donation of $10
