"Priced Out 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.

Priced Out premiered locally on Nov. 1 2017, at the Northwest Filmmaker's Festival. Since it debuted, the film has screened in cities from Los Angeles to Boston.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and local social activists. View trailer here.
