IN COUNTRY

DIRECTOR: MIKE ATTIE AND MEGHAN O’HARA - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE, WA)

VETERANS DAY SCREENING—(DOC) Weaving together vérité footage of men recreating the Vietnam War in the woods of Oregon with archival footage and observations of them going about their daily lives, IN COUNTRY blurs the boundaries between reality and fantasy, past and present, to tell a story about men—many combat veterans of Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan haunted by their own experiences on the frontline. “Then there’s the final jaw dropping casting of one platoon member: a Vietnamese guy who actually fought for the losing South Vietnamese Army. Why on Earth would he want to relive those experiences? The filmmakers ask him,...

DIRECTOR: JOHN GUSSMAN AND JESSICA PLUMB - WASHINGTON (PORT TOWNSEND, WA)

Dams were built and the river was re-routed, creating bustling new towns while destroying tribal lands and decimating the critical salmon population. With the river’s ecosystem on life support, it seemed unlikely that anything could remedy the situation. But a group of environmental advocates, scientists, politicians, and dedicated Klallam crusaders reversed the tide of public opinion and initiated the largest...

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...
