With visions of instant wealth during the dot-com boom, the world largely ignored the disastrous tidal wave of gentrification that came with the new industry that has changed the city's landscape forever. Both humorous and scathing, this new documentary delves into the ironies and contradictions of the "New Economy" and delivers a potent social critique that is ambitious in its scope while remaining close to the human scale. From dot-com party crashing at one end of the economic spectrum to painful moments with evicted families at the other, Boom features interviews with dot-com workers, real estate developers, and San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, as well as those who challenged the new economic order through community organizing, electoral politics, and direct action.

Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
