December 6, 2019 Lake Oswego Library Presents:
The December Film Discussion Group will be held December 6th. Doors open at 1:30 and the movie starts at 2pm at the Lake Theater & Café. Admission is free. We’ll be showing and discussing “Priced Out - 15 Years of Gentrification in Portland, Oregon”. This documentary 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. Winner of the Best Feature Film Award at the New Urbanism Film Festival.
