VISITING ARTISTS—Sean and Christof Whiteman are brothers who have been making smart and irreverent short and feature–length comedies for over ten years. Tonight we welcome them for screenings of their work, including THE DISGUSTING LITTLE SHIVER (2007), a comedy about a man with an affliction he can’t seem to shake, and a preview of their forthcoming CHILDHOOD MACHINE (2013), the story of a young inventor intent on creating a device that will produce childhood for him. They’ll also show selections from their Leap Year series: 29 FILMS IN 29 DAYS—in which they completed a film a day in February 2008 and February 2012—as well as several of their short films including SINCERELY, DUNCAN (2006), in which a young man puts forth his feelings in the most romantic of correspondence options, and ALL OPOSSUMS GO TO HELL (2010), in which a recently deceased opossum uses his one phone call.

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.
