New Film Content
The screening at Delancey Street Foundation’s renown Screening Room will include new interview footage of Hillary Clinton reflecting on what Mayor Lee meant to her and the larger community.
An Inspirational Story for All Ages
The film presents the inspirational, humorous, and emotional story of this remarkable man and community leader, who passed away suddenly while in office.
Watch how Ed Lee — a son of immigrants, a pro bono lawyer-activist for tenants and garment workers, a habitual punster, and a reluctant politician — became a history-making civic leader.

About Delancey Street Screening Room
Funded by Francis Ford Coppola, the Delancey Street Screening Room is the Bay Area venue for Directors Guild of America and Oscars screenings.
Over the years, film industry professionals including actors Sean Penn, Robin Williams, Dennis Quaid, Charlize Theron, and director Ron Howard, have used Delancey Street to screen dailies of films being produced in San Francisco.
The theater is modeled after the screening room at Sundance Institute, based on blueprints donated by Robert Redford.
