Portland 2016 5 mins.

A stolen tri-cycle, fruit-cakes, and clever insults collide.


Shakesburn is a comedy-drama that portrays two people with a strange love-hate relationship. Watch their mysterious behavior and try to guess what is really going on between them. — Pablo Reese

Genres: Narrative

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.
