The project

“Look, Housing” is an eight-part interactive documentary series exploring the efficacy of the affordable housing provision system in San Francisco by focusing on the close-knit community of families at Bessie Carmichael Elementary School - the only elementary school located in the heart of SOMA, a once eclectic neighborhood that has been the target of rapid development for over 40 years.  

Each episode will focus on folks who seek housing and those who work to provide it.  Our hope is that these stories will humanize complex and opaque government policies, and provide the emotional connection and a sense of trust necessary to motivate audiences to organize for change.
