Fresh Frozen

FRESH FROZEN provides an intimate look at a small, Black-owned sandwich shop in a fast changing neighborhood in Oakland, California. The short documentary follows Teena Johnson, an Oakland native who makes "the best fish sandwich in The Town." But everything around her little shop is rapidly developing to cater to young, affluent professionals, and the future of her business is uncertain due to skyrocketing rents. As American cities struggle to address issues of affordability and displacement, the film offers an uplifting portrait of an individual's grit and determination to fulfill dreams in the face of a shifting urban landscape.
