Storyline

As if ripped from today's headlines reporting fires, evictions and street protests, "Another Barrio" tells the story of housing inspector Bob Morales as he investigates the suspicious circumstances of a fatal fire. While investigating a residential hotel in San Francisco's Latino Mission District, Morales finds himself face to face with corruption at City Hall and the mysterious Sofia Nido, a beautiful flame from his past. Morales must also confront his own demons while investigating the crime and ends up caught in a dangerous web of deceit, as he gets drawn into the seedy underworld of bribery, corruption and murder. This independent Neo-noir feature film, based on a story by San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia, takes viewers deep into neighborhoods and communities seldom seen on film, while addressing issues around gentrification and displacement of low-income communities along the way.

Classic noir with a modern twist!
2 April 2018 | by gabriela-dematteisSee all my reviews

If you love the film noir genre, you should see this film! A visually rich homage to the San Francisco Latinx Mission District and a call to action against the rapid changes caused by gentrification. This film offers a unique look at San Francisco through a lens rarely seen in other films and it features many of the real people who inhabit the locations you see in the film. A must see!
