Rob Nilsson is an internationally acclaimed film director and Bay Area native. From 1992-2007, he worked with the Tenderloin yGroup, an actors’ workshop recruited from the streets. Recovering homeless, drug users, and street people mingled with professional actors, inner city residents and all-comers. The result is 9 @ Night, a series of nine dramatic feature films chronicling the lives of 40-50 fictional characters living on the edges of society in San Francisco’s Tenderloin. Each film stands alone but the 9 together weave a single 14-hour portrait of 21st century urban characters struggling to survive.
The 9 @ Night Film Series had its World Premiere over three days at the Harvard Film Archive. The Roxie Film Center will screen the nine films in their chronological order from Aug. 29 - Sept. 4, followed by the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center Sept. 5 - 11. Rob Nilsson and members of the Tenderloin yGroup will be present for post-screening Q & A’s.
