San Francisco’s North Beach: Tides of Urban Development

John Mola’s culinary-heavy short film chronicles the ever-changing face of San Francisco’s North Beach. Similar to NYC’s Little Italy, North Beach is an Italian neighborhood bordering a growing Chinatown. These days, though, Italian-owned businesses are beginning to move back in.

North Beach and Chinatown are fantastic, and I love seeing them on film.
