About the film “Alice Street.” Two Oakland artists, Pancho Peskador, a Chilean studio painter, and Desi Mundo, a Chicago-born aerosol artist, form an unlikely partnership to create a four-story mural in the heart of downtown Oakland. Their site is situated at a unique intersection where Chinese and Afro-Diasporic communities face the imminent threat of displacement and gentrification. As the mural takes shape, it is beset with many difficulties. Planned condominium development will obscure the artwork, which effectively dooms the mural, which becomes a spark for the community to rally to protect cultural arts and to resist gentrification.
