“An existential thriller with nods to dime-store pulp and old-fashioned H-bomb paranoia, the film’s circular story opens in 1953, as New York crime novelist Terumi Matthews steps out for coffee and winds up mysteriously transported to 1997. Once there, she collides with doppelganger Nicole Zaray and ’50s science columnist James Urbaniak (Henry Fool), fellow ‘time freaks’ who share a genetic soul mutation that zips them through time spontaneously. Ruptured not only into past, present, and future, but also into ‘what could have been and what yet could be,’ their existence is malleable and full of incidents beyond their knowledge or control, including murder.” – Scott Tobias, 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.
