Pushed Out is a short documentary film created in The Representation Project’s 2020 Youth Media Academy. Oakland in the 80s and 90s was not a great place as crime and violence ravaged the city. But as the years passed, the city becomes more and more modernized and safe due to gentrification. At a glance, it looks like these new changes are all great but once you look closer you see the damage gentrification has had on Oakland natives.
