Looking through a box of polaroids, a teenage boy reflects on his friendship with a girl, and how their actions affected their relationship.

We were challenged to create a multi-disciplinary art piece based on the concept of “how we got to now.” We decided to focus on how our actions can affect our relationships and friendships, changing who we become as a person.

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.
