Tonight we welcome Women in Film Portland for a screening of recent work from members of this regional meet-up support group. Included in the program are UNACCOMPANIED: Alone in America (2018) by Linda Freedman, which documents the incredible obstacles young children face as they appear alone and without a lawyer in immigration proceedings; Alex Madkour (2018) by Marla Sidrow, a portrait of a young man who moved between 15 foster homes over 11 years; and Chavruta: A Drummer’s Bat Mitzvah (2018) by Jodi Darby, which follows Jewish educator Alicia Jo Rabins as she prepares for her adult bat mitzvah; and many more. Come early for a reception and learn more about the organization.

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.
