More than just a staff show-and-tell, we celebrate short films by Northwest Film Center faculty and staff. The program includes A Year & A Day by Pam Minty, a series of images of Bond Butte taken monthly over the course of a year and then the same butte taken hourly on one day; Baling Baling by Lawrence Johnson captures the efforts of famers in Bali to keep the birds away with rhythmic noisemakers, plastic bags, and scarecrows; Slacker Cats by Paul Harrod, a pilot demo for a proposed animated WB Network series; June by Lee Krist, an early 21st century visual memoir of Portland shot on 35mm slides; Landing Ship X-1 by Dave Hanagan, in which two space traverlers explore a desolate planet and discover a glam rock icon; Light’s Journey by Mark Eifert, a meditation on our presence in the cosmos; Mango by Geoff Peterson, in which a confident psychic challenges a skeptic’s beliefs; Out of This World by Melissa Tvetan, an investigation of sex and string theory, promiscuity and parallel dimensions; Spooky Action at a Distance by Stephanie Hough, which offers a look at the unsettling nature of affected action—feeling home and lost simultaneously; The Rough Rider by Jarratt Taylor Aline follows an effort to make it to the state Wrestling Championship; Picture by Amy Beth O’Brien, sometimes a picture is worth more than a thousand words; and Unrequited by Andrew Price, in which an amateur science fiction writer finds himself torn between two worlds.
