VISITING ARTIST—Scott Ballard, who has worked extensively as a cinematographer and short filmmaker, follows up his first feature WELCOMING DEPARTURE (2012) with this story of a young recluse. A STANDING STILL revolves around Allison (Sara Robbin), who works as a fire lookout in the forest and struggles with the future in the midst of loss and displacement. When she is called down early for a medical emergency with her father, she is forced to face the present and the past that has led her there. Shot on location in Portland; Cannon Beach; Bellingham, Washington; and the Willamette National Forest.
