Film Discussion Group

Friday, December 6, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

 

 

The Lake Oswego Public Library is excited to partner with Respond to Racism for December's First Friday Film Discussion Group.  

December’s film is “Priced Out,” a documentary directed and narrated by Portland filmmaker Cornelius Swart.   "Priced Out" is an investigative and personal look at housing discrimination and the pain of losing a community to gentrification in Portland, Oregon. The film explores the complexities and contradictions of gentrification and life after the era of “the ghetto."

The Library's Film Discussion Group meets monthly at the Lake Theater & Café, and the Library plans to partner with Respond to Racism for these events on a semi-regular basis.  This partnership is an opportunity to bring community members together to view and discuss movies and documentaries that raise awareness about historical and present-day racism.  It's also an opportunity to encourage dialogue about how to respond to racism and to build and strengthen ties among community members.

There is no charge for admission.  Food and drinks are available to purchase from the café. 

Note that our films are generally open to participants 18 and over;  the movies we show may contain scenes or elements that are appropriate for mature audiences only.

Doors at 1:30pm, film starts at 2pm.

Lake Theater & Café is located at 106 N State St, Lake Oswego.   Information for parking
