Montana 2016 96 mins. In English

This Montana-made collaboration between five filmmakers is a fascinating experiment in method filmmaking—a mystery-thriller-horror-documentary that rides an enigmatic line between reality and drama. After receiving an unsettling postcard from an estranged friend living in a secluded commune, four filmmakers take their cameras into the wilderness of Montana to document the mysterious inner workings of the group. They witness something more shocking than they ever imagined. “To say anymore about what these free spirits and their documentarians find would ruin the film. Needless to say, the directors build suspense and inject a twist, which you expect, but it’s an inventive one that you have little hope of guessing.”—The Missoulian. The directors will be in attendance to introduce the film.

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.
