Drive-In at Zidell Yards: March 10 | 6:30 PM PST

The year is 2027, and for reasons not entirely clear, a human child has not been born in 18 years. Civilization has deteriorated. Amidst this desolation, an office drone finds his ennui shattered when an ex-girlfriend arrives with what is surely the only pregnant woman on earth, and a charge that he must help her group get this new mother to safety.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
