Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains 40 B-rolls from the KQED documentary "The Castro", the third episode in KQED’s series “Neighborhoods: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco”.
The documentary “The Castro” is the third episode in KQED’s series Neighborhoods: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco. Produced by Peter L. Stein and David Condon, “The Castro” examines the history of the San Francisco neighborhood once known more commonly as Eureka Valley, from its early days as an Irish-Catholic working class neighborhood into one of the nation’s most prominent gay neighborhoods. Highlighting subjects such as the Council on Religion and the Homosexual (CRH) police raid in 1965, the assassinations of San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Mascone in 1978, and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, “The Castro” integrates interviews with residents of the neighborhood to document the varied experiences of former Irish residents, gay men, lesbians, and queer youth. Filming for the documentary took place over the summer of 1996, and the film debuted in 1998.
