Directed by Edward Pack Davee

Oregon 2018 72 mins In English

Shot on glorious super 16mm, director Edward Pack Davee’s second feature film brings together a chaplain, an infantryman, and a 16mm war photographer in the middle of the forest during World War II. Void of actual battle, Davee instead presents a pictorial document of the ravaged bodies and minds of these three AWOL soldiers. Wandering through mud-caked landscapes, a cold winter steadily approaches and the weary men make their way towards something unknown. Davee’s direction employs a dream-like world in which the characters grope for meaning and fraternity in a world gone mad. Director Edward Pack Davee 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.
