Where the House Was (World Premiere!)

(Ryan K. Adams, Seattle, WA, 2018)

Where the House Was is a documentary about quickly changing cities. When news breaks that a long-standing Seattle literary institution, the Richard Hugo House, may be torn down to make way for a mixed-use apartment building, the then Executive Director Frances McCue decides to capture what made the place so special. What emerges is a new model for sustaining the arts through long-term cultural space preservation.
