Film: “23rd and Union” with director Rafael Flores and Suntonio Bandanaz
Join us for a film and discussion about gentrification in the Central
“23rd & Union” (also an intersection very close to The Wildcat) is a
docu-drama that weaves real interviews with fictional characters to
investigate the 2008 murder of Degene Berecha in the popular Seattle
restaurant “Philadelphia Cheese-Steak”. The director was a friend of the
victim and shares mutual acquaintances with the convicted murderer. He
completed interviews with a wide range of people familiar with each man to
help interpret the circumstances that led to the shooting. The film is an
ADAPTED story and is used as a vehicle to discuss gentrification and the
tension between young African-American men, Ethiopian immigrants and gay
couples in Seattle’s Central District.
Director Rafael Flores and local hiphop artist Suntonio Bandanaz will be
there to participate in a discussion after the film. For a preview, see
