Beaverton City Library presents the documentary “Priced Out: 15 Years of Gentrification in Portland, Oregon” on Sunday, Feb. 18 at 2 p.m. The film is an investigative and personal look at how skyrocketing housing prices are displacing Portland’s black community and reshaping the entire city.
The feature-length documentary explores the complexities and contradictions of gentrification and what neighborhood life means after the era of “the ghetto.” The film is a sequel to the 2002 documentary “Northeast Passage: The Inner City and the American Dream.”
Following the screening, there will be a question-and-answer session with the filmmaker.
This program is free and open to the public; no registration is required. For more information, visit www.BeavertonLibrary.org or call 503-644-2197.
