About This Screening
As the final celebration of Cinema Project’s ten-year anniversary, we close our spring season just as we opened last fall’s, with selections drawn from our substantial program archive. This auspicious exercise in collective curating brings back short film and video pieces, each one chosen by a Cinema Project member from past or present, that we believe deserves a second look. Selections include Robert Frank’s The Present, his 1996 self-conscious rumination on life through photographs and objects; Go Go Go, Marie Menken’s visual symphony of New York in the 1960s; and Liane Brandon’s Betty Tells Her Story, an early film from the modern women’s movement that explores ideas of female identity and image in contemporary culture. The program will take place in a lovely garden setting outside and under the stars, so please bring a blanket or beach chair and join us in celebrating ten years of curating critical cinema in Portland, Oregon!
