MAKE MINE COUNTRY

at 7 PM (Skype Live Studio)

MAKE MINE COUNTRY

DIRECTOR: IAN BERRY - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

 

(DOC) In the 1940s, the US military built an airbase on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia and brought with them their love of country music. The airbase is long gone, but the country music has never left. Part cinéma vérité documentary, part dreamscape, Berry’s film is contemplation on the common humanity of people from vastly different cultures, played against a background of extreme poverty and disenfranchisement—which even the bluest of country-western balladeers would be hard-pressed to convey. Free admission. Space is limited, arrive early.

THE TREE INSIDE

DIRECTOR: MICHELLE KIM, ROB LEICKNER - BRITISH COLUMBIA (VANCOUVER, B.C.)

When Myra meets the charming David, potentially the man of her dreams, she still must fight the impulse to keep looking. Shot over the course of a year, Vancouver’s exquisite seasonal landscape subtly mirrors Myra’s turbulent emotional life. With a soundtrack highlighting music from Canada, the US, Iceland and Belgium, the film also includes a wondrous dance performance by Barbara Bourget of Kokoro Dance.

DEATH ON A ROCK

DIRECTOR: SCOTT BALLARD - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

 

(NAR) Ballard’s (A STANDING STILL, WELCOMING DEPARTURE) latest feature follows a young woman coming to terms with a trying event in her life. Lillian’s (Rachael Perrell Fosket) outlook is bright—she loves her job in a flower shop and has a sweet budding relationship with her boyfriend (Joe Von Appen)—when her existence is unexpectedly rocked by illness. Days spent in long-term care at the hospital bring reflection, desperation, and some family tension...even as the pain also brings happiness and growth. Told through flashbacks and drifting between memories and shifting consciousness, DEATH ON A ROCK is a bittersweet tale balanced between...
