90291: VENICE UNZIPPED is a provocative feature documentary about income inequality in America, told through the lens of one community and three families living in the same 90291 zip code, but at the opposite ends of the growing income divide. In the film, we embed in Venice, California, the once gritty, artistic and working class beach city, now the epicenter of gentrification in Los Angeles and a growing homelessness crisis. We follow three families for a year - one homeless, one middle class and one affluent - living in almost unimaginably different circumstances, while putting a human face on Venice’s vanishing working and middle class. We then follow a proposed homeless housing project that’s splitting the community in two, make connections to gentrification and affordable housing issues in other cities, and investigate how poverty is being criminalized in America. Is Venice, CA, the last beach city of color, a dramatic last stand or a cautionary tale about a nation re-segregating along income lines?

CREATIVE TEAM: The film is written & directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker, Colin Keith Gray, and producer Megan Raney Aarons (AKA The Sibs - "Atari: Game Over", "Being Canadian", "Freedom’s Fury"); along with production manager, Solomon Murphy (AMC, TikTok, Action Against Hunger); journalist/ producer CJ Gronner ("Viceland"), producer Jamila C Fairley ("BELLA!", "Re-Emerging: The Jews Of Nigeria"); political consultant/ co-producer, Marc Baranov; executive producers Amaechi Uzoigwe (Run The Jewels) & Lorien Gabel (Interlog, PINGG); supervising producer Matt Green ("Refuge Wild"); Emmy award winner lead editor, Mohamed El Manasterly ("The Square") and editors Tayler Braasch, Michael Rogers and Davide Fiore; DP Tyler Heckerman ("The Cape"); and Emmy Award winning Interactive director, Ben Tricklebank ("Clouds Over Cuba"). Project is produced by GRAiNEY PICTURES with co-production partners EVO Films USA and Still Moving Pictures.
