Oregon 2017 60 mins.

Poetry, science fiction, and the immigrant experience collide in these three films by Portland filmmakers. Haft Seen (30 mins.) combines the imparting of symbolic gifts from three different parents to their first-generation family members with lingering images and score composed by Roland Dahwen Wu, Stacey Tran, and Jonathan Raissi. Sight (17 mins), by Kalimah Abioto, is a fantastical narrative about a young girl who possesses the ability to travel to different dimensions through her dreams. Field Theories (9 mins), by Keyon Gaskin and Roland Dahwen Wu, visually re-imagines the poetry of Samiya Bashir.
