“STOP is a feature-length chronicle distilled from 2,500 100-ft camera rolls (354 assembled lab rolls) of 16mm film that I shot between 1995 and 2011 and completed editing in 2012. Organized sequentially into four half-hour programs, it operates around the conventions of home movies: the images are of my own life and as home-movie form dictates: the alternating subjects of family, friends and travel are set by the filmstrip with absolute chronological certainty.”—Jeff Preiss.



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.
