To celebrate SF Heritage’s 50th Anniversary in 2021, we partnered with Bread & Butter Films to produce a short documentary on the events and people who galvanized San Francisco’s historic-preservation community, from its inception in the 1960s as a reaction to urban-renewal policies, to the founding of Heritage (1971), early triumphs and losses, and the evolution and expansion of its mission in subsequent decades.
Today we’re premiering Part 3: Cultural Preservation. Stay tuned next week for Part 4!
