VISITING ARTIST—Eugene filmmaker Henry Weintraub’s (THE DARKEST CORNER OF PARADISE) new feature follows fame-obsessed Aaron Schwartz, who has finally figured out the surefire way to notoriety—becoming an infamous serial killer. The only problem is that he lacks the killer instinct—he couldn’t hurt a flea. As the years roll by, he drifts into the malaise of responsible adulthood, and his dark desires become more and more faint until a real serial killer comes to town and Aaron seizes the opportunity to learn a few tips from an expert. “Fiercely independent, with a dark sense of humor… [Weintraub’s] end goal isn’t fame and fortune but the satisfaction of making the movie he wants to.”—Eugene Weekly.



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.
