ARRESTING POWER: RESISTING POLICE VIOLENCE IN PORTLAND, OREGON

DIRECTOR: JODI DARBY, JULIE PERINI, ERIN YANKE - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

 

(DOC) ARRESTING POWER speaks to the history of police violence in our society, providing a framework for understanding the systems of social control in Portland and its history of exclusion laws, racial profiling, redlining, and gentrification practices.

LeRoy Haynes of the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice & Police Reform, Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch, and Kent Ford, founder of the Portland Chapter of the Black Panther Party, the filmmakers explore strategies for community safety that do not employ constant...

BIRDS OF NEPTUNE

DIRECTOR: STEVEN RICHTER - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

 

(NAR) Young sisters Mona and Rachel are left to their own devices after the loss of their cult-member parents. Confined to their childhood home and constantly surrounded by reminders of the past, the girls create their own pseudo-realities. Rachel finds solace in her music and spiritual practices, while her older sister Mona, a burlesque dancer, gravitates toward an unconventional and taboo form of self-expression. When Mona brings a strange new lover into their world who starts to pull away at the fragile threads holding everything in place, the sisters find themselves facing harsh truths about their past. With a...

VOYAGERS WITHOUT TRACE

DIRECTOR: IAN MCCLUSKEY - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

 

In the summer of 1938, filmmaker Bernard de Colmont, his new wife Genevieve and their friend, Antoine de Seynes, set off from France on the biggest adventure of their lives. They had a bold, perhaps even foolhardy plan: be the first to take kayaks down the mighty Green and Colorado rivers. 75 years later, Portland filmmaker Ian McCluskey (ELOQUENT NUDE, SUMMER SNAPSHOT) discovered their story and after finding their journals, photographs and 16mm film documenting their journey, (some of the first-ever color film) he decided to retrace their route. Between 1938 and 2012 much changed on the river. And...

WELCOME TO THE CIRCUS

DIRECTOR: COURTNEY COULSON - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

 

(DOC) Set in the West Bank city of Ramallah, The Palestinian Circus School welcomes The Lido, a visiting circus school from France. In a month, the two schools must come together to create a mobile circus for children. Living in the West Bank means that mastering acrobatics isn’t the only challenge for a traveling Palestinian circus—hitting the road means an obstacle course of permits and checkpoints along the way. But for these students, the circus is a form of peaceful resistance; instead of surrendering to despair, they overcome their difficult circumstances through the power of art and unity.
