Directed by Bill Plympton, Jim Lujan

United States 2016 76 mins. In English

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.

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.
