PUTCHA MONEY IN THE BUCKET is a feature length documentary about street performing in Portland, OR. The art of busking truly encapsulates this city’s spirit of individual expression while simultaneously providing an object lesson in the grit and determination it takes to live out one’s dreams. Though all performers posses their own unique talents and come from very different backgrounds, the buskers in this film have one thing in common: the vulnerability and strength required to perform their art for the general public. Whether their goal is to make it big, put a smile on a strangerΓÇÖs face, or anything in between – all of these artists are compelled to give their art to the streets of Portland. Putcha Money in the Bucket has been two years in the making: filming on the streets of Portland for several months followed by two years of intense editing. This film is not only a glimpse into the heart of a city that is becoming one of the country’s top places to visit and live, but also an honest narrative of what propels artists to create in an economy and culture that does not always appreciate their craft.
