this one is alive -- made with thought and purpose and meaning. I've never been to Oakland, but the film has a true sense of place, without just relying on a soundtrack and b-roll. and the breakdown of white privilege and minority fear is as nuanced and empathetic as any presented on film.

Agreed on all points
I just got around to checking this out on Prime, and this was definitely a more complete film from beginning to end than LBMISF and STBY.. both of which had a lot of potential but also had major flaws.

not really gentrification related but a party in high school where this mexican dude tested the wrong whiteboy assuming he was some poser and wound up getting stomped out something fierce. A lot of us knew this guy's rep, this kid didn't.
Man, I love this movie though. Makes me wish i'd still be travelling to Oakland for Raider games.
