A heinous crime tests the complex relationship between a tenacious personal assistant and her Hollywood starlet boss. As the assistant travels across Los Angeles to unravel the mystery, she must stay one step ahead of a determined policeman and confront her own understanding of friendship, truth, and celebrity. Former Portlander Katz (Cold Weather—PIFF 34), “delves into dreamy neo-noir territory with nods to films from auteurs like Alfred Hitchcock, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Brian De Palma and David Lynch that tackle the ‘double’ in cinema—and the potential, in the process of taking on an alternate identity, of subsuming the darkness of another’s soul.”—AFI Film Festival. (92 mins.)

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.
