Program:
Sister Hearts (16:10)
Mohammad Gorjestani
Maryam Henderson-Uloho spent thirteen years in prison in Louisiana, seven in solitary confinement. After her release she struggled to find housing or employment. She began selling secondhand goods out of a suitcase on a street corner in New Orleans. In just three years, she grew her business to a brick-and-mortar thrift store—one that also provides housing and employment for other formerly-incarcerated women. She calls those women—and her store—Sister Hearts.
Tangled Roots (19:08)
Samantha Knowles
Tangled Roots follows Attica Scott, the only black woman in the Kentucky state legislature, as she fights to dismantle a system of discrimination against black people penalized for something seemingly innocuous – their hair.
Vote Neil (18:41)
Honora Talbott
Two gay Marine vets in Birmingham, Alabama battle their hardest mission: Election Week 2018. Neil Rafferty is a first time politician running to be the first openly gay man in the Alabama Legislature. Mike Rudulph is his fiancé and campaign manager searching for purpose. An intimate portrait about politics, the Southern LGBTQ experience, and one incredible love story.
How Far is Home (22:00)
Apo W. Bazidi
In the midst of Trump’s immigration ban, a teenage refugee Ahmed and his sister Ruba find a home at a Cleveland school for immigrants. While they struggle to pursue their dreams, current immigration policies weigh heavy on their minds.

“A hot SF scene” – SF Chronicle
When you arrive at PianoFight, you walk into the most beautiful bar in the Tenderloin, where you can order drinks, and listen to whoever happens to be playing the cabaret stage that night. From there, refill your drink, and head into one of the two theaters to see your show.
If you plan on ordering a drink before your show, we recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes early so you (and our staff) have plenty of time. Drinks are allowed (and encouraged!) in the theaters.
PARKING: Street parking is free after 6pm. We’re located 2 blocks from Powell BART, numerous muni lines and there are 3 parking lots within 1 block.
ACCESSIBILITY: PianoFight’s restaurant, bar, and both theaters are fully ADA accessible.
AGE RESTRICTIONS: PianoFight is 21+ for all events. Please bring a valid ID.
