It Takes A (Diverse) Village
In the heart of East Oakland, Calif., there is a unique and diverse community. The people who live on Picardy Drive take great pride in their street and in the strong bonds that have evolved and endured through decades of difficult changes. Each year during the holidays, a string of lights connect all the homes - a tradition that started 60 years ago. Picardy Drive is an intimate and honest account of what it is like to live in what many consider a dangerous neighborhood. The documentary portrays a compelling slice of American life, one where community is symbolized by a colorful connection of holiday bulbs, but where differences are not dulled by any singular American dream.
