Thursday Metro Talks features documentary "Re-Entrification"

Metro Talk

"Re-Entrification" is a feature-length documentary film that tells the story of residents that have been displaced from their homes due to high cost of living. 

As part of MTC's Metro Talks, a screening is set for Thursday, March 14 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Yerba Buena Conference Room, Bay Area Metro Center, 375 Beale St. Register for the program here. Documentary directors Fēgo Navarro and Christian Bustos will be on hand to talk about their film.

Tiny homes became a sanctuary where families can have the fundamental human right of a home. This film tells their story on how they made the decision to seek this type of support.

"Re-Entrification" sheds light on the housing crisis in the Bay Area. The term re-entrification means being able to move back into communities and neighborhoods that a person is originally from. It’s the way to bring back its history, beauty, struggle, pain – the soul.

It's to create and reclaim sustainable economic structures that allow people living in the neighborhoods to thrive within their own neighborhood; to recapture the native essence of that place, according to the filmmakers.
