Title: Fragments (Winter 1966-67)
Summary: Truly, Portland is blessed by its site and scenery." "Fragments" shows contrasting views of the city of Portland, using the perspectives of two residents who live amidst and are affected by the city's burgeoning growth in the mid-sixties. The film explores the environmental, economic, and social effects of urban renewal, suburban expansion, mass transit, freeway development, proximity to natural areas, and industrial growth in Portland, and makes a case for the metro area's many governing bodies to work collaboratively to repair or avoid damages done by rapid urbanization.
