SAVING PELICAN 895

DIRECTOR: IRENE TAYLOR BRODSKY - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) Brodsky’s new film tells the gripping story of the rescue of pelican “LA 895”—one of the oiled bird victims of BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill—by the Fort Jackson Oiled Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Louisiana. Neither a story that compounds the horrors we already know about our nation’s worst oil disaster nor a treatise on oil production or consumption, SAVING PELICAN 895 is the tale of a single animal and the compassionate people deployed to save him, showing how the process of saving one life restored a degree of humanity for the rest of us.

Screening follows SPOIL.

SOME DAYS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS

DIRECTOR: MATT MCCORMICK - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(NAR) “Delicately weaving together the lives of three lonely strangers, the story explores the elusiveness of personal fulfillment as McCormick’s characters bump up against the discarded and are forced to confront their own impermanence and need for human connection. Subtle, convincing performances by musicians James Mercer (The Shins) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) and lyrical cinematography reveal McCormick’s finely tuned directorial eye. As a silent main character, the city of Portland is the common thread—a reminder that, as bleak as things may seem, in small, unexpected moments around unlikely corners, the possibility for hope and beauty remains. McCormick establishes himself as...

SPOIL

DIRECTOR: TRIP JENNINGS - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) SPOIL follows the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) and the Gitga’at First Nation people of British Columbia in their search for the elusive spirit bear. All white but not albino and rarer than the panda, the spirit bear lives only in the Great Bear Rainforest on the north coast of British Columbia, a place at risk from a proposed oil pipeline. In an effort to oppose the pipeline, the ILCP’s mission is to create images of this rare bear and the unique ecosystem that it relies on. (44 mins.)
