Freedom on the Block?

Tenderloin community youth in San Francisco share their views on what it means to be free. Freedom on the Block? was produced by fifteen and sixteen-year-old Asian American directors and actors working collaboratively. Neglect, deterioration, and social problems like drug and alcohol abuse, high unemployment, overcrowding, and violence characterize the Tenderloin District, home to 12,000 Southeast Asian refugees from Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.
