Oakland – Crime – Bad Grades – Drugs – Poverty + Bicycles + Green + Baby Champ + Creativity + Pride = Scrapertown.

A 5Point Film Festival Fave:

I’m sitting on the floor in a dark corner of the huge main hall at 5Point Film Festival missing out on VIP drinky/munchy fun blogging up a final favorite film for you.

If you love it, support Scrapertown…even if just to share this link up via email or on your Facebook Wall: this one’s more than a film, it’s a mood, a happy one. It’s a community, a hopeful one. It’s a cause, and one we can all get behind.

It’s Scrapertown. We’ve got to hang with Baby Champ for a few days…he came out here and gave some talks and q&as and was taken fishing by the Eastern boys and we all got to watch this last night. Enjoy:

Bonus: at a million views, the vid that started it all off:

    THIS is brilliant! Thank you. I think more movement like this is what helps pull misguided youth back to being involved members of a collective society…teaching them that this is OUR society, one where they can have a positive voice. Love it.
