Montana 2016 75 mins. In English

Kathy Kasic is best known for her work on nature documentaries which have aired on public television and nature channels. The founding director for the Center for the Communication of Science, an art and science initiative at Montana State University, she is also an artist in residence at Tippet Rise Art Center in Fishtale, Montana, where she has created short films in collaboration with classically trained musicians who play concerts there each year. Tonight Kathy will present a program of her films, which utilize the natural light as it bends and shines off of sculptures installed around the 11,500 acre art ranch. Kathy will be on hand to introduce the program and take questions after the screening.

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.
