Oregon Public Broadcasting- OPB says
Join us for a free, public screening of our new Oregon Experience documentary "Vanport."

It tells the story of Vanport, Oregon, which, in the early 1940s, was the second-largest city in the state before a catastrophic flood destroyed it. The program examines how the city was created and thrived, and is told through very personal stories of former residents and rarely seen archival film and images from a variety of sources. It includes firsthand accounts of what it was like to live there, to flee from fast rising waters, and the devastation after the flood.

The screening event will feature the one-hour documentary followed by a Q&A with OPB Producer Nadine Jelsing and flood survivor Ed Washington. It is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., show starts at 7 p.m.

“Vanport” airs Monday, November 14 at 9 p.m. on OPB TV and will be available to watch online at at the same time.
