The proud history of arts and culture in San Francisco is an indelible part of the City's identity. However, with skyrocketing real estate costs, artists and arts groups are being forced out of the City in growing numbers. In turn, homelessness is on the rise -- and thousands of children and their families are without a home. Join SOMA Pilipinas in supporting a proposed ballot measure that addresses both of these urgent needs via funds from the City's hotel tax.
"Filipino Stories from SOMA" at CAAMFEST!
On Wednesday, May 16 2018, CAAMFEST, SOMA Pilipinas, and Kularts SF present the debut screening of Alleluia Panis’ dance film She, Who Can See, based on her live dance theatre performance of the same title. Presented alongside She, Who Can See are the stunning community documents Borja Family Movies and Rico, SOMA Pinoy. This special evening of vibrant short films presents audiences the opportunity to gain a wide yet intimate understanding of the history, stories, and people that comprise Filipino life in San Francisco and the South of Market — a place rich in tradition and narratives that has recently been recognized by the State of California as the SOMA Pilipinas Filipino Cultural Heritage District.
