  • The Great Northwest

    2012. USA. Directed by Matt McCormick. This experimental documentary centers around a re-creation of a 3,200-mile road trip made in 1958 by four Seattle women who documented their journey in an elaborate scrapbook of photos, postcards, and brochures. Fifty years later, Portland artist and filmmaker Matt McCormick found that scrapbook, and set out to follow their route as precisely as possible. Simultaneously observational and voyeuristic, The Great Northwest is a lyrical time capsule that explores how the landscape and roadside culture of the Pacific Northwest has changed over the past half century. 70 min.
