California Humanities is proud to co-present the premier of Dogtown Redemption at the 38th Annual Mill Valley Film Festival on October 10 and 15. This California Documentary Project film follows the lives of three recyclers in West Oakland’s Dogtown neighborhood—Miss Hayok Kay, a former punk rock drummer; Landon Goodwin, a former minister; and Jason Witt, a titan of recycling. For Miss Kay, Landon, and Jason, recycling is the primary and often only source of income. To other residents of the rapidly changing Dogtown community however recycling only adds to the dirt and noise of the neighborhood. Dogtown Redemption takes an intimate look at the conditions of poverty and change as three recyclers try to make ends meet in one West Oakland community.
