8:24 am
it is an important thing to know a nail house is a term that was coined in china based on people who would refuse to leave their homes when big developments like malls and highways were coming through, and so you'll see these pictures of homes that are dug out completely all around and just one little tiny house left. so it is a rogue real estate hold out that refuses to give up their land, and kind of referring to a rusty nail that is very hard to get out. >> so let's talk about this film. it is a little bit about recycling, going green. it is a lot about neighbors and the homeless problem and really how neighborhoods change and the fight that goes on with it. >> yes, absolutely right. we have a city that is in a sort of very hyper speed changing space and there is more and more people who have and more and more people who have not and a greater divide between them. and there is a real problem of vicability in our public spaces about who is able to utilize them and what they're -- vice
8:25 am
abilities in our public separations about who is able to utilize them. >> and it is quite a process. you spent nearly eight years putting this together? >> i did, yeah. and it all started out as conjecture in the neighborhood. there was a lot of division. there were a articles. there were people who were upupset and then everything got very, very real in 2010 when the commission decided to actually evict the center which began a two to three-year-long battle to keep it open. and so that was my burden and i tried to meet it and stay around as long as i could to document what was happening so when it was over people would know how things went down. >> let me just say i really thought this would end up being a story of glory, the under dog winning out. i really did think this would have a happy ending, so when it didn't, we had to resolve that in the film as well.
8:26 am
>> and we're talking about 2/3 of an acre of land when you talk about this tiny spot in golden gate park where it started and caesar and how it kind of grew from there. you talk about not getting the ending necessarily that you maybe expected, but did you learn something else, too, when you're talking to all of the people and really all of the different players in it, very passionate on all sides of this. >> absolutely. and i think what i learned is that it is really hard to find the common ground when people are so polarized, and i listened to obama's speech yesterday and he mentioned, you know, that there always is common ground, and i believe that that is true, and so my hope is that maybe in mourning this place and continuing to talk about its meaning and impact to the city we can start to find that common ground because i really do think people are closer to the same
8:27 am
side than they realize, but they're unable to find that common ground when it came to this place. >> sometimes it is hard to find even though we know it is there somewhere. >> maybe the film can help. >> maybe it can help. thank you so much. >> thank you so much for coming in and good luck with the film. we appreciate your time." nail house" is playing at the san francisco green film festival on tuesday, september 11. it will be at 5:30 p.m. at the center for the arts. so there are only rush tickets available left now for "nail house." that means if you do want to go to the screening, that means you will have to try to get it before the film starts. and you can buy the full festival pass that is $200 and you can pick up that pass at will call. tuesday night is when "nail house" plays. coming up next, politics search for an op ed writer speaking out against the white house. and we explain more about in talking about how the president's push to find the

washington, and saturdays aren't the same anymore. >> i guess. let's start with president obama who is campaigning for democrats here in the state, and the two both the current president, president obama took a couple of shots at each other yesterday, is that unusual, and do you expect more to come? >> the answer is it is unusual, and, yes, i would expect more to come. i think president obama is feeling like he needs to step up for democratic candidates and also perhaps a partial assault by president trump on his legacy. in turn, president trump is saying, hey, i want to take credit for the things i'm doing, but it is unprecedented really to see presidents getting into a spat. it has happened, don't get me wrong, but this is the current version of it. >> we talked about unprecedented, though. i feel like just in general we always kind of wade into waters that we're not used to, so when
8:46 am
we're talking about in the break about what the big headline is, you can't focus on this now because we have the kavanaugh hearings that just wrapped up and those were contentious. and where do you think that goes from here? is it inevitable? >> i think so. i think brett kavanaugh ends up being the justice of the supreme court and that probably happens before the month is over, along party lines by the way. i think you'll see it come out of the judiciary committee which is 21 members, and he will be confirmed. >> do you think the hearings might be a little too long? 12 hours in one day? a couple of the senators might be running for president and one has california ties. maybe they're grand standing a little bit to get a little pub? >> well, i think a lot of people who have watched these types of hearings in the past feel like there were certain senators who were quote,
8:47 am
unquote, grand standing. this particular candidate, and we saw this in the testimony by a lot of people outside of the senate, you know, who were brought forward to talk about his character, this particular candidate is highly qualified, whether he had opinions that run counter to what some people think is appropriate, you know, there's an argument that not all of his papers were released and that sort of thing. but if you want to see how you're supposed to testify before a united states senate committee, he was a pretty good example and there were lots of hard questions and lots of long hours. >> okay. president trump is tweeting this morning, brian. he has four tweets so far. one endorsing a candidate, another one talking about his quote, unquote, unprecedented achievements, one talking about economic records, and then apple prices and tariffs. he is all over the map, which is not unusual, but he does not
8:48 am
talk about the op ed in "the new york times" which, you know -- or bob woodward's book. he has been tweeting about it before. where is that in terms of -- i have seen a lot of things about what has happened in the white house as they try to track down who allegedly wrote this op ed. where do you think that story is headed? >> well, we don't know. they're looking. there are folks inside the white house who are close to the president who are saying it is just time to let it go. it is what it is, and it is a huge distraction, but the op ed was a powerful op ed. it really did come from a senior member of the trump administration, and there is some dispute about that. there are people who say maybe it is somebody a couple of layers down. if it were a senior member of the administration, it raises a lot of questions about how the presidency is being run from the inside, and so we'll see where it all goes, but it is
8:49 am
fascinating. it is a who done it. >> and it would be kind of interesting to find out who that person was, wouldn't it. it would change things. >> you know, i can't see that it will remain a secret. first of all, people at "the new york times," i don't know how many, know who wrote it. and other people know who wrote it, and i think, you know, ventally, frank, it will come -- event altly, frank, lit come out. >> timing is everything. >> brian, thank you so much for joining us this morning. we always appreciate your insight. >> absolutely. wonderful. have a great saturday. >> you, too, brian. >> thank you. >> bye, now. >> time for weather. rosemary is somewhere on the premises. i can hear her walking over. >> towards the green screen. >> there she is. what do we have in store today? >> we have nice weather. giving you a live look here first at the blue sky. we have partly cloudy skies around the bay area. partly cloudy, partly sunny along the coastline. temperatures similar to yesterday, perhaps just a tad

new this morning, housing advocates are questioning the merit of a plan to build houses at a caltrans station in san mateo. caltrans has been talking to the developer about a development of an under used parking lot at the heyward park station. it would create a 189-unit complex with 10% to 20% of the homes priced at affordable housing, but the journal reports that the housing advocates are demanding more affordable units, and they say they're violating a law by only negotiating with one developer. it is 9:16 now. today is an important day in one of the world's largest environmental clean-up projects. it is a story that ktvu has been following for months. a dutch company has been assembling the 2,000-footed- long floating tubes at the naval air station. they will be turned out from the bay area on to the golden gate bridge and out into the ocean.

this project is aimed at scooping up the floating debris between california and hawaii. it is known as the great pacific garbage patch, and it is more than 600,000 square miles. while there are skeptics, the idea is that the ocean currents will move all of that debris into the barrier which will collect the garbage and a ship will then come empty the unit and haul away the trash. california governor jerry brown is directing state agencies to work together to protect plant and animal species in the face of climate change. the governor signed an executive order that says that the state's plants and animals create a, quote, complex and beautiful ecosystem upon which so much california's people and economy depend upon and orders agencies to come up with plans for protecting native species and restoring natural habitats. time now is 9:17. let's go over to rosemary for a check of the saturday forecast and when does it get hot?
