This video is a short excerpt from "The Great Northwest," a 70-minute experimental documentary that explores how the visual landscape of the Pacific Northwest has changed over the past 50 years. The project is based on the re-creation of a 3,200 mile road-trip made in 1958 by four Seattle women who thoroughly documented their journey in an elaborate scrapbook of photos, postcards, brochures and receipts. Fifty years later, Portland filmmaker Matt McCormick found that scrapbook in a thrift store, and in 2010 set out on the road, following their route precisely and searching out every stop in which the ladies had documented.
