“While on a fishing trip in the Aegean Sea, six men decide to play Chevalier, a game that measures every aspect of who they are. Things will be compared. Blood will be spilled. At the end of the game, one man will emerge as the best and receive a signet ring. Tsangari further solidifies her place as a master of the Greek cinema new wave with a cleverly written script with co–writer Efthymis Filippou (The Lobster, PIFF39) that is an acute and humorous study of male egotism. Chevalier is an absurdist farce that explores the competitiveness of male relationships as could only be observed by a female auteur.”—AFI Fest.

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.
