Join us for "The North Pole" -  the hit political comedy web series about three best friends born and raised in North Oakland who struggle to stay rooted as gentrification and global warming turn their neighborhood into a hostile environment, where they feel as endangered as polar bears in the North Pole.

Across seven outrageous episodes, Nina, Marcus, and Benny  combat evil landlords and crazy geoengineering plots to save the place they call home. Comedian W. Kamau Bell, former Black Panther Party leader Ericka Huggins, and Oakland-based rappers Boots Riley and Mistah FAB appear in cameos. Stay after the screening for an audience Q&A with lead actor Donte Clark and director Yvan Iturriaga.
