Ramps to Nowhere
Wed Sep 26: 7.15pm

Minda Martin
Seattle, WA, USA
1h 10m
Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2018: Feature Films

** Preview screening **

In 1960, Seattle began undergoing a seismic change. The construction of I-5 ruthlessly bifurcated the city, rupturing the buildings and social fabric of what is now known as the International District. The same year, voters approved the citys plans for the proposed Bay Freeway and R.H. Thomson Expressway, two massiveand intrusivehighway projects. But by the middle of the decade, the ill-effects of the destruction wrought by 1-5 had become clear to the citizens. And when it became known that the citys plans for the Expressway called for a similar rending of the historically African-American and low-income Central District, the public mobilized in revolt. Based on priceless present-day and historical interviews with the citizens who fought back, Minda Martins film tells the origin story of the Ramps to Nowhere in the Washington Park Arboretum and restores them to their rightful place as monuments to the power of protest.
