A young couple reunites while on a summer excursion into the forest. An otherwise peaceful experience becomes jolted, however, by a strange presence making itself known through sounds and lights. Might this be another entity or something more sinister? Ian Clark’s film holds “a serene steadfastness that seems to run underneath the other cinematic tributaries, guiding and influencing not only the narrative components of the film, but also the presentation of imagery and its audio accompaniment.”—Film Pulse.



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.
