Date: 2017

Location: Division Midway District, East Portland

Collaborators: Joe X. Jiang

Division Midway Stories explored how businesses in the Division Midway District have responded to the safety initiatives being implemented by the city. The project consisted of multiple interviews with business owners and footage from the neighborhood, culminating in a screening with PBOT and the businesses. The project used documentary filmmaking to help better communicate the needs and concerns of the business owners to the city.
