Directed and produced by Ashland, Oregon based filmmaker duo Gary and Anne Lundgren, Phoenix, Oregon tells the story of Bobby Hoffman (James LeGros), a graphic novel artist, who after a divorce finds himself living in a trailer and working behind a bar for an ego maniac (Diedrich Bader). As delusions of aliens controlling his life begin to take root in the midst of a mid-life crisis, Bobby’s old friend Carlos (Jesse Borrego), decides the abandoned bowling alley is a great way to re-ignite Bobby’s passion for the sport while serving the world’s best pizza’s, made by Carlos’s loving hands. After ultimately deciding to take the risk and put his mother’s small inheritance into the alley, the realities of owning a small business begin to cast doubts on Bobby and Carlos’s plans for taking control of their own lives. With a cast that includes Lisa Edelstein, Kevin Corrigan, and Reynaldo Gallegos, this film is Ashland made.

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.
