BornxRaised's Spanto Tackles Gentrification In Venice for 'The War For Home' Short Film
A new production from Unlock Tomorrow.
Titled The War For Home, Unlock Tomorrow‘s new short film aims to tackle “how incarceration and gang injunctions were used to fuel gentrification in Venice.” The Matthew Leeb-soundtracked piece comes to us courtesy of director Danny Dwyer, and is being released as part of the Cal State LA Fine Arts Gallery’s “(RE)ENTER (RE)THINK (RE)STORE” exhibit.
“If you’re going to step into somebody else’s home, you should probably take your shoes off or maybe do it with a little bit more respect, instead of being more brazen about it and so disrespectful about it; that’s how I feel about gentrification,” Spanto explains. “This whole thing we’re talking about right now, it’s basically my everything.” Spanto has expressed similar sentiments on a grander, more fashionable level with the release of politically-minded BornxRaised collections, such as the Fall/Winter 2017 drop.

Most recently, BornxRaised headed to Compton and linked up with The Internet’s Steve Lacy for its Spring/Summer 2018 lookbook.
