Directed by Brian De Palma

United States 1972 93 mins. In English

Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope, Psycho, and Rear Window, and featuring a score by Hitch’s regular collaborator Bernard Herrmann, Sisters stars a pre-fame Margot Kidder as a woman suffering from separation anxiety and Jennifer Salt (Play It Again, Sam) as the reporter who sees a murder play out through a window in the building across from her apartment. “Part of the fun is watching De Palma recombine Hitchcock plots with his own voyeuristic obsessions.”—Jesse Hassenger, The A.V. Club.

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.
