Marking the Portland theatrical premiere of TIPPING POINT, Co-Producer Julianne Johnson-Weiss joined us in the PRP studios on Sounds of PDX and offered our listeners amazing insight as to the film and the upcoming evening at Alberta Abbey on June 15th (which includes a Q&A and a musical performance by Mic Crenshaw)

In 2020, following the murder of George Floyd, the largest civil rights protest in recent history erupted worldwide during a global pandemic. Portland, Oregon, became the focus of media attention for its protests and demonstrations against systemic racism and police brutality. TIPPING POINT is a documentary film that captures the first 90 days of the Portland protests. Told through the individual stories of Portlanders on the ground, TIPPING POINT humanizes the struggle while allowing Portland’s story to serve as a mirror to the rest of the country – the past that brought us here and the future we must choose.
