Future Portland, Oregon Humanities (5:28)

Future Portland, Oregon Humanities
Produced, directed and written by Ifanyi Bell and Kathleen Holt, Brushfire Creative Partners and Oregon Humanities, 2015 

This beautiful, atmospheric film focuses on several prominent black civic leaders, who describe what they feel has been lost in Portland because of gentrification while expressing hope for the future. The film builds on the ideas of community, displacement and belonging discussed in the essay "The Air I Breathe" by Ifanyi Bell, which appeared in Oregon Humanities magazine (Fall-Winter 2014).
