HEART BREAKS OPEN

DIRECTOR: BILLIE RAIN - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) A model queer activist and poet, Jesus (Maximillian Davis) prides himself in his work with the Seattle LGBT community. At the same time, Jesus is having unprotected sex and cheating on his long-time partner Johnny (Samonte Cruz).

HOW THE FIRE FELL

DIRECTOR: E.P. DAVEE - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(NAR) “Joe Haege (31 Knots frontman and part-time Menomena member) stars as preacher Edmund Creffield in Davee’s ambitious debut feature about the turn-of-the-20th-century Corvallis-based cult Bride of Christ Church.

Zion.”—Willlamette Week

HOW TO DIE IN OREGON

DIRECTOR: PETER D. RICHARDSON - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) “In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. As a result, any individual whom two physicians diagnose as having less than six months to live can lawfully request a fatal dose of barbiturate to end his or her life. Since 1994, more than 500 Oregonians have taken their mortality into their own hands. Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether—and when—to end their lives by lethal overdose, examining both sides of this complex, emotionally charged issue. What emerges is a life-affirming, staggeringly powerful portrait of what it means to die...
