THE CURIO

DIRECTOR: DICKY DAHL - OREGON (PORTLAND, OR)

 

(NAR) Based on his short film of the same name, Dahl’s first feature weaves documentary and narrative elements into a poignant and funny memoir about the collapse of his marriage and subsequent struggles to find his footing in the bohemian paradise that is Portland, Oregon. His ex-wife, parents, and brothers appear as themselves in the film and scripted material, footage from the director’s married life, and interviews with family and friends paint the picture of a somewhat misguided late-bloomer experiencing all the freedom, loneliness and humiliation that come with having to start over when the bloom is off the...

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.

SLACKJAW

DIRECTOR: ZACH WEINTRAUB - WASHINGTON (OLYMPIA, WA)

 

(NAR) "Rob and his friend Austyn apply to become human guinea pigs at the local medical testing facility of a vaguely intentioned multinational company called EvCorp. The facility’s mere presence has bitterly polarized their town, so the two apply in stealth. Austyn is accepted— ushered away and out of contact into EvCorp’s shadowy interior—leaving Rob to bear the burden of secrecy and the private concern that all may not be well with his friend. As he navigates both sides of the town’s deepening rift, guilt and denial do battle in his mind, eerie visions, paranoia and a strange physical...

THE TREE INSIDE

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

 

(NAR) Myra is a woman who can’t maintain a relationship with anyone longer than a couple of months—aside from a famous author (played by famed Canadian author Michael Turner.) 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.
