SAN FRANCISCO–HOME IS A HOTEL theatrical premiere

Winner of Documentary Feature Award & Audience Award at the 2023 SFFILM Festival!

SAN FRANCISCO–You are invited to theatrical premiere of HOME IS A HOTEL on Thursday, August 17, at 6:30 pm PT, at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco.

From within the walls of their 80 sqft SRO hotel rooms, a diverse group of San Franciscans strive against systemic forces and a housing crisis with hope and humor in their search for a place to call home.

A loving newly single mother in Chinatown, a blind Latina librettist fighting harassment and eviction, an ex-couple in recovery and co-parenting a 6-year-old son, a spirited graffiti artist ambivalent about painting murals for the tech companies moving into his neighborhood, and a determined mother on a quest to find her runaway daughter while raising a toddler. Through these stories, filmed over 5 years, this character-driven, verité documentary immerses viewers in what it means to call a single room home in one of America’s wealthiest cities.
