Directed by Ian Clark

La Grande 2012 77 mins.

Named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” in 2012, Ian Clark’s latest work is an observational approach to the documentary film genre, a strategy that marries well with his previous narrative work, notable for its lack of dialogue and desaturated action. MMXIII is an experimental portrait that explores phenomenological subtlety, intersections of construct and vérité, and the ways in which technology, landscape, and beauty coalesce. “Here, an artist’s reflexive gestures investigate moving images and the nature of image construction, blurring the lines between cinema, still photography, and performance art.”—New Orleans Film Society.



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.
