The Riverfront Ruckus


The Riverfront Ruckus & White Washed Tombs

A new feature-length documentary film by Omnific Pictures

Directed, shot, and edited by TJ Walkup

Ruckus examines the social and political atmosphere surrounding a proposed “green” cement plant on prime waterfront property in a San Francisco Bay Area community. Through interviews, archival footage, and commentary by filmmaker TJ Walkup, a tangled web of bribery, corruption, and environmental racism and injustice is exposed.

The film leaves the viewer to question the underlying reasons why this short-sighted business proposal continues to reappear on the City Council agenda despite an overwhelming outcry from citizens, and the City’s own staff, Chamber of Commerce, School Board, and Planning Commission.
