Documentary on Northeast PDX gentrification

I got the chance to meet Cornelius Swart over coffee yesterday. The former publisher of The Sentinel, he’s currently running the Oregonian News Network, a new program from the Oregonian to connect with Oregon bloggers. During our conversation he mentioned a previous project he worked on: co-producing and co-directing the film NorthEast Passage: The Inner City and the American Dream. Lost Oregon readers might be interested in purchasing the film. In the meantime, here’s a clip of the opening.
