Former Portlander Bill Plympton comes home for this special pre-release screening of his eighth feature, which tells the story of low-rent bounty hunter Rod Ross, the One Man Posse. Rod gets tangled in a web of seedy danger when he takes on a job from Deathface, an ex-biker, ex-wrestler turned US senator. Rod has to find what was stolen from the senator and find the girl who stole it. Soon, Rosse finds there’s more than meets the eye to this dirty job. “A madcap romp through a 1970s Los Angeles underbelly of bikers, wrestlers, strippers, cult members, bounty hunters, and corrupt politicians… in an explosion of anarchic, satirical insanity.”—British Film Institute.

An adult tale of love, jealousy, revenge, and murder—infused with Plympton’s surreal sense of humor—Cheatin’ takes its inspiration from the work of such James M. Cain noir classics as Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice. In a fateful bumper car collision, Jake and Ella meet and become the most loving couple in the long history of romance.
