GLENA

DIRECTOR: ALLAN LUEBKE - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

(DOC) “Glena Avila is a single mother from The Dalles who decided in her 30s to pursue a career as a mixed martial-arts fighter. Devoting herself to a grueling training regimen that puts her relationship with her boyfriend and her children at risk, and fending off a custody battle with her ex-husband and the foreclosure of her home, this 5-foot-4-inch, 115-pound dynamo never gives up in her quest for cage-match glory. Sounds like an inspirational, even sappy, Hollywood script treatment, right? Wrong. Luebke filmed Avila for more than a year and then spent three years editing the footage into this...

DRYLAND

DIRECTOR: SUE ARBUTHNOT, RICHARD WILHELM - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

(DOC) Josh Knodel and his best friend Matt Miller helm JAWS, a tricked-out, welded up, baby blue farm combine-in-retirement in the annual farm Combine and demolition derby in Lind, Washington. This raucous and quirky barn-raising spectacle is not only great fun, it also helps build and support the struggling rural community. Family farming is in Josh’s genes, but his dream shatters when he learns the family farm can no longer support him due to advancing technology and increasingly severe climate. Filmed over a decade and set in the American West, DRYLAND traces a young man’s quest for victory in a...

THE WINDING STREAM

DIRECTOR: BETH HARRINGTON - WASHINGTON (VANCOUVER, WA)

(DOC) “THE WINDING STREAM begins at the source of what we know as classic country music—the original Carter Family from the Appalachian foothills. Unlikely superstars, A.P., Sara, and Maybelle Carter had their first success on the radio in the late 1920s. Maybelle brought up the next generation (Anita, June, and Helen) and they toured as Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters in the 1960s and ‘70s, influencing much of the folk revival. When June Carter married Johnny Cash, their combined family kept the musical legacy flourishing. George Jones, Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson, and many others cite the influence...

CLOSING NIGHT SCREENING—(NAR) After fleeing the trappings of fame, for- tune, and success in the bullfighting arena, an orphan turned beloved matador navigates the afterlife. On the advice of a mystic healer he journeys into the desert to perform a ritual of rebirth and burns his suit of lights, the traditional bull-fighting costume. Upon waking he is joined on his path through limbo by three joyful yet mischievous companions—guiding spirits in the form of rodeo clowns. As the clowns begin to tease out the matador’s secrets and ease him into his new life, they are meanwhile being closely pursued by...
