Keeper of the Creek Free Screening & Online Q&A with Subject & Filmmaker
- 2 years ago
Bay Area filmmaker Dan Goldes, whose first feature, 5 Blocks, is an official SDFF 2020 selection, will be holding a Q&A on his 2018 short Keeper of the Creek at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 11. Both 5 Blocks and Keeper of the Creek focus on people actively working to maintain and improve very different environments. Keeper of the Creek focuses on Dan’s brother, Joel, who adopted and stewarded a forgotten creek and watershed near his suburban Los Angeles home, while 5 Blocks is a long-form documentary about changes to San Francisco’s Central Market Street, a neighborhood whose residents are fighting to keep the neighborhood’s identity and community as it undergoes its most dramatic change in 50 years. Both films examine the relationships between people and their environment, and show that even in an era of cynicism and divisiveness, people can act independently and collectively to make tangible differences in their environment.
