Vancouver 2015 90 mins. In English

Myra is a woman who can’t maintain a relationship with anyone longer than a couple of months—aside from a famous author (played by famed Canadian author Michael Turner.) When Myra meets the charming David, potentially the man of her dreams, she still must fight the impulse to keep looking. Shot over the course of a year, Vancouver’s exquisite seasonal landscape subtly mirrors Myra’s turbulent emotional life. With a soundtrack highlighting music from Canada, the US, Iceland and Belgium, the film also includes a wondrous dance performance by Barbara Bourget of Kokoro Dance.

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.
