Imagining Home

Planning An American Dream

(2010) DVD 65 minutes

Imagining Home traces the complete transformation of Columbia Villa—a historic, cherished, and maligned Portland, Oregon public housing neighborhood enduring poverty, gang violence, and racial discrimination—yet hoping for a new chance. The film follows several main characters over five years through displacement, relocation, and return to the new development. Despite numerous obstacles, the tenacity and cooperation of residents move the charge to rebuild the soul of their community. Then, when New Columbia is re-inhabited, tensions around race and class threaten the new-found stability. A link to watch a film trailer will be available soon.
