BUOY

DIRECTOR: STEVE DOUGHTON - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(NAR) A woman receives a telephone call from her long-lost brother—reconnecting with the central, though neglected, emotional anchor in her life. Over the span of real-time phone conversation, the two siblings test the strength of a deep, if challenged love. “BUOY is a powerful, deeply engrossing meditation on family, middle class alienation, and love. What begins as a minimalist nod to MY DINNER WITH ANDRE and JEANNE DIELMAN results in a dramatic, emotionally gripping excavation of contemporary life, exquisitely controlled and grounded in its pitch-perfect performances, writing, and direction.”—Todd Haynes (SAFE, FAR FROM HEAVEN, I’M NOT THERE)

THE COLORS THAT COMBINE TO MAKE WHITE ARE IMPORTANT

DIRECTOR: BARRY DOUPÉ - BRITISH COLUMBIA (VANCOUVER)

(EXP) Doupé’s film explores the power structure within a failing Japanese glass factory. Two parallel storylines involving the investigation of a suspected employee and that of a stolen painting converge to reveal an exposition on gender and desire. “A deliberately artificial-looking computer-animated feature set mainly in a Japanese office and filled with hilarious non sequiturs (‘I made miniature versions of giant sandwiches; they are the same size as regular sandwiches’), it sometimes suggests an Adult Swim program in its warped sensibility. But Doupé’s dialogue is much headier than anything on TV, with considerations of gender inequality, modern art, and existentialism...

THE CRIME OF THE D’AUTREMONT BROTHERS

DIRECTOR: TOM OLSEN - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) On October 11, 1923, Ray, Roy, and Hugh d’Autremont held up Train #13 of the Southern Pacific Railroad just outside of Ashland, Ore. Four trainmen were murdered. The brothers were found four years later and sentenced to life in prison, the neo-Old West story capturing the imagination of a public that followed every chapter. Olsen’s detailing of this “last great American train robbery” is told through the eyes of the lawyer who fought for their parole and another documentary filmmaker who struggled to make his own film in 1973.

The architecture of the space is as much a character as the population that passes through it, with borders of glass between the street and the pharmacy and again between the pharmacist and her clients. The tension of the situation and the struggles on both sides of the glass are punctuated with moments of good humor and camaraderie.”—Images Festival (47 mins.)

FAMILY PORTRAIT IN BLACK AND WHITE

DIRECTOR: JULIA IVANOVA - WASHINGTON (SPOKANE)

(DOC) “In a Ukrainian village, big-hearted, formidable Olga Nenya singlehandedly raises 23 foster children. Sixteen are the biracial offspring of visiting African students and Ukrainian women, who, living in a country of blue-eyed blondes that’s racked with endemic racism, often see no choice but to abandon their babies. Olga reveals herself to be loving and protective but also narrow-minded and controlling. A product of Communist ideology, she favors collective duty over individual freedom. It’s this philosophy that gives the orphans the rich sense of belonging they ache for, as well as cause for rebellion and distrust, in this lyrical, sometimes...

In the last 60 years, technology and economics have reshaped America’s agricultural landscape: the quest for ever-higher yields and the flight of the younger generation have resulted in bigger and bigger farms. FIELD WORK follows Judy and Charlie Swanson and their three grown children through the economic meltdown as they pursue a dream of farming together as one extended family. When son Jeremy purchases his first 80 acres, he plants a stake...

THE GREAT NORTHWEST

DIRECTOR: MATT MCCORMICK - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(NAR) Portland filmmaker Matt McCormick’s new film is inspired by—and recreates—a 3,200-mile road trip made in 1958 by four Seattle women who recorded their journey in an elaborate scrapbook of photos, postcards, brochures, and receipts. Fifty years later, McCormick found the scrapbook in a thrift store and, charmed, set out to retrace their route, searching out every stop that the ladies had so lovingly documented five decades earlier. The resulting film juxtaposes the land and landmarks then and now, a double portrait capturing the eternal and the new. “Like McCormick’s other quasi-documentary film projects, THE GREAT NORTHWEST is notable for...

Realizing that his life is about to be scarred by rebranding with the name ‘Dick Licker,’ he enlists his smart-aleck friend Chad to devise a plot sabotaging his mother’s marriage. Writer/director Brady Hall takes potty mouth to an Aaron Sorkin-esque level as Rich and Chad exchange barbs slathered in dizzyingly complex references to human anatomy and derogatory putdowns. In the course of executing their despicable plot, they enlist the help of a psychotic...

POLLUTION IN PARADISE, primarily written and narrated (with Richard Ross) by then-broadcast journalist Tom McCall, was a clarion call to arrest the runaway, man-made pollution that was threatening Oregon’s pristine air, rivers, fields, and quality of life held dear. The film was not only a key starting point of the modern environmental movement in Oregon but the beginning of what would later be the hallmark of McCall’s 1967-1975 term as governor: a...
