Directed by Stuart Eagon

Oregon 2018 77 mins. In English

Shot on super 16mm, Eagon’s black and white love letter to cinema and place is constructed of three parts, each documenting temporal decay in an urban landscape with its various inhabitants. Part one evokes a dream-like state as a mysterious soundtrack hovers over industrial details and utilitarian structures hanging precariously in time. Part two provides a voice to those living among the bridges and buildings as houseless citizens speak their mind on subjects such as the absurdity of sleeping under window displays of bedroom sets. Part three utilizes quotes from film critics such as André Bazin to examine the position of cinema in the realm of fine art and the various means of documenting time itself. Director Stuart Eagon will be in attendance.



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.
