Portland filmmaker and educator Jodi Darby has been making festival rounds with her award-winning 2014 documentary Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland Oregon, which she co-directed with Julie Perini and Erin Yanke. Darby will join audiences at the Northwest Film Center to present a program of some of her earlier short works, including Stonewall (2010), an essay film exploring the American Civil War through a queer lens; 100 Suns (2011), a found footage work utilizing film from a Los Alamos nuclear testing lab and set to a score by Marisa Anderson; Man Movie (2013), a deconstructive look at male-centric cinematic action, and Constellation (2014), a visual documentary exploring the border wall between the US and Mexico and the ideological divide it represents for the two cultures on either side of the fence.
