Portland 2016 3 mins.

A cityscape full of patterns, shapes, shadows, and movement.

The reality and the obsession of simplicity and structure and people seeing only in rectangles and straight lines rather than seeing with a creative eye. My film is a jumbled exploration of a mind that sees more. — Courtenay McLeod

Genres: Experimental

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.
