Heart of the City

Heart of the City Film

We’re a growing team of creative individuals fascinated by San Francisco’s civic ecology in an increasingly polarized sociopolitical climate.  Heart of the City works to address the need to share insight and perspective from people throughout the socioeconomic spectrum on an accessible social media platform.  The renowned urban scholar Jane Jacobs said,  “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody”.

Having documented public issues concerning crime, drugs, income inequality, arts, city government, homelessness, and race for over three years in San Francisco’s Tenderloin and Mid-Market districts, we’re beginning to draw parallels of value to disenfranchised social groups and communities at large.   We’re creating relationships between non-profits, city government, private sector business, artists, small businesses, and citizens by providing reportage and user feedback on a variety of topics relative to current events and the needs of the community.  Heart of the City is a collective of laborers of love working to hone our individual skills while joining in the reciprocity of the community experience.

Heart of the City

Heart of the City is a social news platform developing alongside a documentary film investigating the socioeconomic divide in San Francisco through the lens of the Tenderloin neighborhood and its adjacent districts. The project seeks to re-imagine the fourth wall and stimulate social media discussions to integrate with the narrative of the film and other supplemental content.
