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.

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.
