Washington 2015 80 mins.

A film Hughes envisioned to connect filmmakers around the globe using the “exquisite corpse” format of beginning where one left off. The film features 21 different filmmakers all coming together to create one feature-length road film.

Shooting locations include Seoul, Berlin, Barcelona, Newcastle, Ruma, Colliguay, Toronto, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Baton Rouge, Baltimore, Portland, and Seattle. The filmmakers include Pip Chodorov, Charles Chadwick, Kate Lain, Amy Bassin & Mark Bickley, Reed O’Beirne, Konstantinos-Antonios Goutos, Stephen Broomer, Salise Hughes, Douglas Katelus, Blanca Rego, Arto Polus, Robert Zverina, Margaret Rorison, Dustin Zemel, Ben Popp, Insa Langhorst, Anna Kipervaser, Pablo Molina Guerrero, Milan Milosavljevic, and Jesse Malmed.

Immediately following this film we will premiere a Portland based 10 min mini version of this collaborative filmmaking game featuring Jodi Darby, Matt Schulte, Karl Lind, Sam Pirnak, Micah Vanderhoof, Estevan Munoz, Sean Whiteman, Stephanie Hough, Miles Sprietsma and Howard Mitchell.  All prompts created by Salise Hughes.

On May 5th at Noon Salise will conduct a free workshop and demonstration on her own working process and in the evening present a screening of her award winning films.



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.
