The Tenderloin Museum is thrilled to present a “making-of” exhibition about the independent, locally produced feature film Life Is Fare, curated by the film’s director, Sephora Woldu.
“The Shoots” is a colloquial term used by Woldu to reference the seemingly endless movie-making efforts over 2015 to 2018, the time that it took to shoot, re-shoot, re-re-shoot, post-produce, and promote the finished product of Life is Fare. Throughout this process, cast members moved away, passed away, got married, had babies, and flourished as artists in their own right. During that same period, the Tenderloin captured in the film changed considerably-Woldu notes the closure of The Gangway and relocation of the original Lafayette Diner as significant events in the making of Life is Fare .
“The Shoots” gallery show, on view from September 6th to 30th, is an existential roar that commemorates the Tenderloin and the Eritrean community that calls the neighborhood home while celebrating the success of Life Is Fare.
A reception will be held for “The Shoots” gallery show on Thursday, September 6th as part of SF First Thursdays Tenderloin/Lower Polk Art Walk.
