Come join the actors and writers of the funny and important comedy The North Pole.

Executive produced by and featuring Rosario Dawson and guest starring Boots RileyThe North Pole is a political comedy about four friends in North Oakland who fight, dream, and plot hilarious schemes to stay rooted as their neighborhood becomes a hostile environment. In the highly anticipated new season, Benny, Nina, Marcus, and Finn face up against ICE agents and shady sheriffs, wildfires and white supremacists – along the way discovering their own power and purpose in this riotous journey of laughter and liberation. 

In this moment of rising xenophobia, racist violence, gentrification, and climate chaos, we need stories like this more than ever. Bold. Brown. Unapologetic. And yes, hilarious. (Because you know, life is still #Life.) 

Building off the success of the show’s first season, The North Pole: Season Two will launch in September 2019 with an exciting tour of colleges. Here’s the short trailer for the show à

2:00 - 3:30pm  Screening
