Talent 2017 1.5 mins.

A colorful, enveloping expression of grief and the self.

From filmmaker Jayden Becker: To create 230 of these frames, I painted a stroke and then took a picture of myself with my tripod. Art has always been my outlet. Art became one of the few things that has really helped me through incredibly difficult times. This is my expression of grief, and the power it has as it can consume, as well as the idea that no moment is the same. Cherish your loved ones.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
