Where the House Was
A Documentary Film About Richard Hugo House

Located at 1634 11th Avenue, literary center Richard Hugo House is scheduled for demolition in 2016 to make room for mixed-use apartments. In the face of the tear-down, our documentary Where the House Was will create a collective memory of the building, along with the neighborhood where writers, actors, artists, neighbors and activists have been gathering for years. Led by writer and Hugo House co-founder, Frances McCue, Team Demo Hugo - a collective of writers, geographers, designers, and filmmakers - is making a documentary that will follow the demolition.

Hugo House is being given a home in the new building-to-be and the film will seek to answer some of the big questions: Can this case teach us how and what to preserve in Seattle, one of the fastest growing cities in the United States? More importantly, can it teach us how the soul of a neighborhood can thrive within new physical structures?

This project is being launched under the sponsorship of Seattle's 501(c)(3) non-profit arts collective, LoveCityLove, and funds are currently being raised via crowdfunding website Indiegogo. The team has already raised 50% of its initial campaign goal of $22,000 in order to produce this film. Additionally, a $25,000 grant from Lucky Seven Foundation has been acquired and will count towards the film's overall budget of approximately $100,000 - the rest of which will come from other foundations, grants, and donors. The ultimate film will be created by our award-winning cinematographer, Ryan Adams, whose previous work has landed at Sundance.

Where the House Was is providing the neighborhood with opportunities to become engaged with changes happening all around them. A successful gathering took place at Sole Repair Shop on November 21 with highlights including news about the project, food, activities, and the Northwest poet, Jan Wallace, as a special literary guest. Our crowdfunding campaign - which has just over 10 days remaining - has already been featured in local media outlets including the Capitol Hill Times and The Daily at the University of Washington. Urban change is not new to Capitol Hill, but this time we're poised to note how the community adapts and takes stock beforehand of just what ground the neighborhood's already covered.
