zerode – a sensibility


film, music, text, city, spectacle, pleasure

We love… community gardens.

The Hayes Valley Neighborhood PARKS Group (HVNPG) is an ethnically and economically diverse group committed to fostering neighborhood participation, pride, and environmental stewardship for the parks and recreation areas in the Hayes Valley-Western Addition of San Francisco. We accomplish our mission through programs and projects that empower all residents, youth, and their families to be healthy and safe, and to positively impact their community. Our programs engage, recreate, and educate children, families, and other residents.

The 400 Blows


is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, film buff and occasional reviewer, and former private detective. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.


What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
