the oregon holocaust memorial
[Not for people who can't handle the 'F' word.]
This is a video rendition of an incredible poem by writer/activist Eugene Johnson (He Who Laughs A Lot). I first heard Eugene read this poem at a coffee house. I came up to him and said, "We gotta do a video of that poem!" He said, "Okay!" I wanted to try to do justice to his remarkable words.
His daughter Felicia was a trouper. My friend Terry Quinn did the videography and insisted I storyboard the whole production before we began, which turned out to be a pretty good idea. We filmed on a grey day in early spring 2007, on location -- the scene of the crime -- Washington Park in Portland, Oregon.
