Company Town

Episode 1 of 1

"Company Town" tells the story of how residents of Chinatown and the Latino Mission District in San Francisco overcome the odds to save their communities. At the center of the story is an election that focuses on the role of "home-sharing" apps in incentivizing evictions and the creation of mini-hotels rather to replace rental housing. Told without narration, Company Town follows journalist Joe Rodriguez and educator Jeffrey Kwong as they take us through neighborhoods being transformed by skyrocketing rents and evictions. Two local candidates represent opposing views on the role of gentrification and the "sharing economy." We follow their campaigns and debates from the inside as they take on issues that affect cities across the country.
