Breathin': The Eddy Zheng Story is an upcoming documentary film is about Bay Area community leader Eddy Zheng, who served twenty years in prison for a robbery he committed as a teenager, turned his life around and dedicated himself to youth violence prevention, only to face deportation to China. He's a fascinating figure, and hopefully this film will help to share his amazing story.
The good folks behind the documentary are hosting a fundraiser to come up with the money to finish the film. They've received a matching grant from East Bay Fund for Artists up to $10,000, so if you're in the Bay Area and down to have a good time for a good cause, your help would be greatly appreciated.
It's basically a fun-ass dance party with Bandung 55 (featuring Kiwi Illafonte) and some of the Bay Area's hottest DJs. It's happening Friday, September 14 at 330 Ritch in San Francisco. Here are some more details about the party:
