“Rob and his friend Austyn apply to become human guinea pigs at the local medical testing facility of a vaguely intentioned multinational company called EvCorp. The facility’s mere presence has bitterly polarized their town, so the two apply in stealth. Austyn is accepted— ushered away and out of contact into EvCorp’s shadowy interior—leaving Rob to bear the burden of secrecy and the private concern that all may not be well with his friend. As he navigates both sides of the town’s deepening rift, guilt and denial do battle in his mind, eerie visions, paranoia and a strange physical malady begin to emerge.”— Locarno Film Festival.



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.
