EAST HASTINGS PHARMACY

DIRECTOR: ANTOINE BOURGES - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) “Bourges documents the daily routine of a typical pharmacy in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside where most clients are on treatments that require taking daily doses of methadone witnessed by the pharmacist. 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...

FIELD WORK: A FAMILY FARM

DIRECTOR: JOHN HELDE - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(DOC) A quietly powerful journey to the heartland of America, FIELD WORK tells the story of the Swansons, family farmers who stay small in an era of mega-farms. 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...

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. 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...

TIME OF THE ROBOTS

DIRECTOR: ERIK HAMMEN - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) Working with a treasure trove of public domain films with titles like FLASH GORDON CONQUERS THE UNIVERSE, RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON, THE PHANTOM CREEPS, and TARZAN THE FEARLESS, Hammen has fashioned his own new sci-fi adventure tale harkening back to the matinees of 1940s Hollywood. This bustling good fun gives new life to expired stars like Buster Crabbe and Bela Lugosi in an authentically convoluted story of aliens, phantom planets, and robots running rampant.

YOUR SISTER’S SISTER

DIRECTOR: LYNN SHELTON - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) “Relationships are killers, and this tough, tender, deeply satisfying romantic comedy from writer-director Lynn Shelton (HUMPDAY) is also bruisingly funny. After his brother’s death, Jack (Mark Duplass) takes an offer from his platonic friend Iris (Emily Blunt) to chill at her family’s island cottage. Expecting solitude, Jack instead finds Iris’ older sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), nursing her own wounds after breaking up with her girlfriend of seven years. A tequila night ends with Jack and Hannah improbably in bed and Iris’ arrival the next morning as Jack and Hannah try to hide all evidence of their one-nighter. A trio...
