Cinema Orange | Alice Street

Oakland’s unique cultural legacies come to life through the story of an unlikely partnership between Oakland artists Pancho Peskador, a Chilean studio painter, and Desi Mundo, a Chicago-born aerosol artist. Despite threats to their ambitious plans for a four-story mural in the heart of Oakland, three years of intensive community engagement—which included mining historical archives, interviewing culture-keepers, and giving numerous design presentations to local residents—pays off with the resulting mural, The Universal Language, one of Oakland’s most iconic public artworks.

Only available in Southern California. Space is limited; please RSVP. The film will be available to watch anytime beginning 12 am, Thursday, February 18 through 11:59 pm, Sunday, February 21, PST.

Presented in partnership with Newport Beach Film Festival and organized by Leslie Feibleman, director of special programs and community cinema, Newport Beach Film Festival.
