Directed by Ben Ratner

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 2013 93 mins.

VISITING ARTIST—“Writer/director/actor Ben Ratner tells an emotionally stirring story of three young women—Fawn, a talented but insecure actress; Harper, a gifted rock singer teetering between self-destruction and self-discovery; and Aki, a scatological artist who emerges from under her paint-stained hoodie like a drunken butterfly. Inspired by Ratner’s longtime friendship with iconic Vancouver actress Babz Chula, this is a funny film about mentorship, friendship, living life to the fullest, and, ultimately, letting go.”—Vancouver International Film Festival. Winner of the Most Popular Canadian Film Prize at the 2013 VIFF.

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.
