June 13th and 15th Openings & Events

Stress Position.jpg

On Thursday, June 13, The Northwest Film Center is thrilled to present STRESS POSITION, the latest work by Vancouver, B.C.-based filmmaker A.J. Bond.

Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Bond made a bet with close friend and longtime collaborator actor David Amito to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other.

Shot in an avant-garde "torture chamber" in an isolated warehouse, what begins as a bizarre and darkly humorous reality TV scenario quickly spirals out of control, testing the limits of their friendship and exposing the connection between filmmaking and torture.

The Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery at Reed College, is presenting a one-day video installation by Portland artist, author, and PLAZM editor Tiffany Lee Brown in conjunction with her installation, Anakena: The Easter Island Project.

Anakena: the Easter Island Project is the culmination of Brown's interdisciplinary artwork spanning five years, seven cities, and the island of Rapa Nui. The project explores the human urge to create and procreate, and our potential to transform through art, collaboration, and ritual. The installation will document transformative process and show the "seeds" of creativity.

Internal Server Error is an intensive survey of artist Felicity Fenton's personal web usage.

For Offline, she compiled dictionaries, encyclopedias, phone books, user manuals, notebooks, old letters, junk mail, maps, mixed tapes, manuals, photos, take out menus, paper bills, and post-it notes to create a tactile version of her internet usage and to pay homage to all things analogue.
