Mudville Harvest: The Untold Story of Stockton, CA
This film is the first of its kind. Exploring historical and societal factors that contribute to Stockton's current reality, it sheds light and paints a clearer picture as to why the city faces the problems it does on the scale it does. Stockton today ranks statistically as one of the most challenged cities in the nation, yet remains absent from the public discourse. This film gives voice to segments of the community that for generations have not had one, giving further insight into communities created out of dysfunction, segregation, and neglect; intersecting with the policy failures of a status quo controlled city to produce a reality that affects all segments of the population.Combined with research and empirical data, interviewee perspectives and oral histories create a nexus of understanding about a city that was broken long before it went broke and seeks to find solutions to those challenges.
