The Other Barrio

Adapted from a short story by San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia, and set against the current epidemic of evictions and gentrification, The Other Barrio is a fictionalized account of true events. Based in part on the December 1975 fire at the Gartland Apartments at 16th and Valencia Streets in San Francisco, director Dante Betteo’s THE OTHER BARRIO follows investigator Roberto Morales as he sifts through the suspicious circumstances of a fatal fire in a residential hotel in San Francisco’s rapidly gentrifying Mission District, and finds himself face to face with corruption at City Hall, murder in the streets, and his own demons.
