A PLACE OF TRUTH

DIRECTOR: BARRETT RUDICH - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) Abigail Mott is a 21-year-old woman traveling from city to city as a nomadic street poet. Inspired by watching a street poet in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, Abi sets up camp on a choice city street corner with chair and typewriter and offers to write a personalized poem on the spot for passersby. They decide the subject matter and the fee they’ll pay, and they leave, generally delighted, with a fresh poem all their own. Eventually, Abi takes her typewriter to Brooklyn and New Orleans, where she finds a like-minded artists’ community and develops a crush on a fellow poet. As much about poetry as it is about young romantics in the seemingly impenetrable new economy, A PLACE OF TRUTH offers a case study from the 99%. (65 mins.)

WITH

THE DIDIER CONNECTION

PORTLAND

Edited from distressed rushes lost for 37 years, then found in a moldy basement in Portland, this new/old film is about the relationship between Penny, an English teacher, and Didier, a little French boy who has come to spend the summer with his grandmother in Portland. (12 mins.)
