Oregon 2017 60 mins. In English

In 2002, Swart made film about his NE Portland neighborhood, which expressed hope for a community plagued by violence. Fast-forwarding 15 years, he finds a much-changed landscape in which hope came, but not necessarily for the same people. Facing displacement in a rapidly gentrifying city, Swart explores how rising property values have affected the lives and relationships of a once-dominant African-American neighborhood in Portland.
