About

Jim Berry received a 2005 GAP to aid in production of The Room, an examination of a suburban housing community, The Cottage Lake Bridal Trails, in Woodinville, Washington. This documentary will compare the corresponding room in each of the 32 identical houses that relates to the artist’s bedroom. “I want to make a movie about the room I grew up in. And I want to investigate what my room is like in these other homes, the homes of my neighbors, tucked away in the trees, a half hour from Seattle. My goal is to find as many diverse and interesting stories as possible,” says the artist who plans to compile his research of each into a documentary short film.
