HELLO, MY NAME IS DICK LICKER

DIRECTOR: BRADY HALL - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) “Rich Winthrop is a likable if slightly neurotic high school student whose mom is engaged to an effete and personality-deficient man with the last name Licker. 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.

at 8:45 PM (Whitsell Auditorium)

SEARCHING FOR YELLOW

DIRECTOR: IAN CLARK - OREGON (LA GRANDE)

(NAR) Voted one of Filmmaker Magazine’s Top 25 New Faces of Independent Film, Clark’s latest is “the story of a graffiti artist going through a breakup who uses spray cans to literally paint flowers, making nature his canvas. (Clark was also inspired by the story of Antonioni painting trees white while shooting RED DESERT.) In the ultra-restrained, pared-down YELLOW, Clark’s quiet, lingering shots of Oregon’s sleepy towns and countryside are resonantly, hauntingly lovely, simultaneously intimate and expansive.”—Nick Dawson, Filmmaker Magazine

Screening with HELLO, MY NAME IS DICK LICKER.
