NAT BATES FOR MAYOR
Directed by Bradley Berman and Eric Weiss
The 2014 mayor’s race in Richmond, CA (home to the state’s second largest refinery) is the setting for this revealing and often humorous story of black versus white and pro-development forces versus eco-friendly Progressives. A mix of corporate influence, race, gentrification and homophobia is told through the lives of some unforgettable, bigger-than-life small-town characters.
