The North Pole screening and fall mailing party with Catalyst Project
Come out and watch the political comedy web series The North Pole, a satire chronicling the lives of three North Oakland best friends — Nina (Reyna Amaya), Marcus (Donte Clark) and Benny (Santiago Rosas) — as they navigate their rapidly changing neighborhood. The first season sees the trio navigate gentrification, a rent hike, the impacts of climate change and slick-talking tech leaders who co-opt progressive values. This second season deals with deportation, the first undocumented immigrant to run for public office in America, wildfires in Northern California, racist family members, and ridiculously escalating Twitter wars. After the film we'll discuss gentrification, climate, immigration and how they intersect with white supremacy, and guests will be invited to help address and stamp Catalyst Project's fall mailing.
Location: 1721 Broadway, Oakland - Telegraph room (second floor)
