15 years of gentrification in Portland, Oregon
   
What does the word gentrification make you feel? "Pain."
 
In the 1990s, Nikki Williams embraced the idea of gentrification. Fifteen years later she blamed it for "obliterating" her neighborhood. Priced Out is an emotional and investigative look at how rising home prices have displaced Portland's African-American community and reshaped the entire city.
 
Priced Out explores the complexities and contradictions of gentrification and life after the era of “the ghetto.” It powerfully illustrates how government policies and market forces combine to destroy and rebuild neighborhoods. Some embrace new investment at first, but few are left standing when new money moves in and old residents find themselves priced out.

Priced Out is a sequel to the 2002 documentary “NorthEast Passage: The Inner City and the American Dream.”
 
Produced in partnership with NW Documentary Arts & Media.

Meet Nikki Williams

Williams is a straight-talking single mom who does not suffer fools gladly. Her only wish was to live in a healthy black community. In the documentary NorthEast Passage, filmed in the late 1990s, Nikki worked to kick drug dealers off her block and fight off subsidized housing projects on her street. She welcomed gentrification. Over a decade later, she realized she was one of the last black people on her street. While Nikki wanted to see the neighborhood fixed up, she never thought “they would kick everybody out, fix it up, and tell everyone they can’t come back.”

Nikki is a homeowner. As we return to Nikki in Priced Out, we find her torn between grieving for the loss of her community and seeing the opportunity to sell her home and achieve economic freedom for the first time in her life.

What the Press is saying

"As fascinating to watch as it is devastating to comprehend" - Portland Mercury

"Not a problem confined to Portland" - Orange County Weekly

"Swart's powerful documentary should be required viewing" - Willamette Week

"Both [Northwest Passage and Priced Out] poignantly depict how the particular processes that displace and erase marginalized communities–and in these cases processes that displace black people and black neighborhoods–contribute to logics that naturalize gentrification. Priced Out also particularly shows the how the aesthetics and young, white demographics of gentrifying coffee shops (and I’m thinking about the recent controversy in Denver with its “happily gentrifying” coffee shop) and apartments act as violent signifiers to long-term, often non-white residents—who often also being displaced by huge rent hikes—that they are no longer welcome in their neighborhood." - Urban Cultural Studies
