Friday Film Club – Still Life

  • September 9, 2016 — December 9, 2016

Our third Friday Film Club revolves around the concept of the still life. We present this theme through the lens of works that use compressed or real-time temporal storytelling strategies—fascinating in their narrative economy and focus on the small details that make up our day-to-day lives. Friday Film Club screenings are presented monthly when the Portland Art Museum’s galleries are open late on Friday evenings. Each screening is accompanied by a post-film discussion led by Film Center staff and Art Museum docents, in which a work from the Art Museum galleries is utilized to spark dialogue and debate about the film. Special Admission: $5.
