Join us for the premiere and post-reception for Henri Quenette’s film about San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood.

The Tenderloin has long been known as the “heart” of San Francisco. It is the last refuge for elderly, disabled and low-income working people striving to stay in the city. This area is perhaps the last frontier in SF’s ever-expanding gentrification trend. It has a high density population and has prominent issues with drugs. The Tenderloin can be a difficult place in which to live. Almost a quarter of the neighborhood’s residents live below the poverty level. It can be painful to look at how hard life is for some people. We think of that existing in some far-off country or continent, but it’s in our own backyard, right in downtown San Francisco.

At the same time, the film highlights how much love there is among the residents of this neighborhood and the people who work here in order to improve the life of the Tenderloin residents.
Love Me Tenderloin shows the everyday life of four inhabitants living in the Tenderloin: Bridchette, Arnold, Woody and Indian Joe.
