Priced Out looks at how skyrocketing housing prices are displacing Portland's black community and reshaping the entire city. Directed and produced by Cornelius Swart, the film explores the complexities and contradictions of gentrification. Priced Out is a sequel to the 2002 documentary NorthEast Passage: The Inner City and the American Dream.
The music was supervised by Farnell Newton and includes an original score by Spencer Wolf. The film features music from local artists, including Trio Subtonic, Andrew Gorny, Ezra Weiss, Barra Brown, and Farnell Newton. Our song, Where the Road Ends, from our album, Looking for a Sign, was included in the film. It features Mac Brown (guitar), Spencer Finnan (keys), Drew Nelson (bass) and Austin Stewart (drums/composer).
Priced Out premiered locally on Nov.1 2017 at the Northwest Filmmaker's Festival. Since it debuted the film has screened in Los Angeles, St, Louis and Pittsburgh.
It has been a wonderful experience to hear our music on the big screen. We look forward to more experiences where we can combine music with moving pictures. Please reach out for licensing, scoring or collaboration opportunities.
