The Portland Circuit, a collaboration between the Oregon Made Creative Foundation, the Northwest Film Center, the Hollywood Theatre, the Clinton St. Theater, Cinema 21 and Lawrence PR to provide a local run for a Portland made feature films, is pleased to present the sixth feature film from director Jon Garcia, Sex Weather. The morning after the premiere of his new film, sleepy-eyed Darrel (Al’Jaleel McGhee) wakes to find himself in bed with his friend and crew member Syndey (Amber Stonebraker). As they discuss the previous evening and the film’s tepid reviews, emotions give rise to reflection on the passionate and thoughtful relationship that they could have shared if either had taken the chance. Filmed almost entirely in a small studio bedroom, the actors give stand-out performances of tumultuous regret and hopeful futures—while trying not to step on a fake lava floor. Director Jon Garcia will be in attendance to present the film. Come early for a reception at 6pm.
