Directed by Zeek Earl, Chris Caldwell

United States, Washington 2018 100 mins. In English

This engaging science fiction thriller tells the story of a young girl, Cee, played by the up-and-coming Sophie Thatcher, as she fends for herself on an alien moon filled with rogue outlaws and mercenaries in a distant galaxy. Rather than using high-end special effects, directors Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell rely on Northwest locations, strong character development, and performances from actors such as Jay Duplass and Pedro Pascall to create a story in which audience familiarity of place gives way to an engrossing tale of deceit, greed, and ultimate trust. Winner of the Adam Yauch Hörnblowér Award at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, Prospect is the first feature film from these talented Northwest directors.

Genres: Sci-Fi

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.
