With the help of food carts, popular TV shows, and indie music, in the last decade Portland has shifted from a being city to becoming a brand. But is our time in the spotlight coming to an end?
Lewis & Clark media studies professor Bryan Sebok has his students making a documentary called Cartlandia, about diversity in Portland’s food cart scene.
From the Portland Tribune:
Too much of a good thing
Sure, “Portlandia” is just a TV show, Sebok says. But sometimes life does start imitating art, even after the art has disappeared from the airwaves. And there’s something to be said for building on an established brand name. “It says something about what we’re up to,” Sebok says of the name choice. “We’re playing with the mythical nature of local identity.”
Award-winning filmmaker Brian Lindstrom B.A. ’84 will premiere his newest documentary, Alien Boy: The Life and Death of James Chasse, in Portland in February. The feature-length film focuses on a man with schizophrenia who died after a run-in with police officers in September 2006.
