In a rapidly gentrifying city, the construction of a luxury condominium threatens a local mural forcing the artists and a neighborhood to rally to protect its history, voice, and land.

Director(s): 

Spencer I Wilkinson

After a decade working with gang-involved and homeless youth in the California Bay Area, Spencer founded Endangered Ideas in Oakland, to focus on stories of resilience.

In 2018, he directed the feature-length "ONE VOICE: The Story of the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir" which premiered at the Mill Valley Film Festival, was a "Best Movie of the East Bay" in 2019 and featured on PBS' "Truly CA" 2020 season.

He is the director and producer of ALICE STREET which premiered in 2020. KQED Arts describes ALICE STREET as “set in just a few city blocks, it’s a story about intractable loss as well as collective refusal, depicting artists’ role in grassroots activism that builds power by bridging communities.” ALICE STREET won the Audience Choice Award for Feature Documentary at the Oakland International Film Festival.

Spencer's films have presented at the Urbanworld Film Festival, Newport Beach, Mill Valley, Marda Loop, Oakland International, Milwaukee, Social Change, DOCUTAH, Brighton Rocks and London Rocks, ARTS x SDGS Festival and the San Francisco Latino Film Festival.
