THE BRIDGE

The Bridge is a short documentary film created in The Representation Project’s 2021 Youth Media Academy. In one Eastern Washington city, there is a long history of segregation. Through the decades, the Tri-Cities has existed as a farm region, a plutonium producer for WWII, and a sundown town dubbed the “Birmingham of Washington” by the NAACP. While racial segregation is no longer overt, today, it silently separates the odd amalgamation of Ph.D. scientists, migrant farmworkers, and white nationalists in the region. By exploring her city’s history, one woman gains a further understanding of identity by piecing together the messy history before her.
