Oregonian coverage of summer 2020 protests for racial justice

"Portland's Burning Heart" uses a combination of iPhone footage, on-the-ground photography and haunting voice over to tell the story of Portland's ongoing street protests from the perspective of a woman who knows them well: Emmy-winning photojournalist Beth Nakamura of The Oregonian. Beth is the burning heart at the center of the film, and over the course of its 13 minutes we watch as she evolves from local reporter to teargas-dodging, stab-vest-wearing conflict journalist.
