'Quality of Life' @ Red Vic

Shot in San Francisco's own Mission district by locals and starring many well-knowns in the SF art and music scene, this gritty underground drama has been winning awards at international film festivals. The film tells the story of Heir and Vain, childhood friends who have evolved into a brilliant team of grafitti artists, covertly decorating the canvases of concrete and steel throughout the Bay Area. When they're arrested for painting and their secret identities are revealed, creative outlets are abruptly severed. Faced with restitution and the prospect of serving hard time, they struggle to maintain their creative passion, their lifelong friendship, and ultimately, their lives.

Check it out at the Red Vic Movie House on Upper Haight from March 3rd to the 5th.
