VIEW TRAILER

A spellbinding mystery of identity, illusion, and deception unfolds against the turmoil of post-World War II Germany in the stunning new film from acclaimed director Christian Petzold (Barbara, Jerichow). Nelly (Nina Hoss), a German-Jewish nightclub singer, has survived a concentration camp, but with her face disfigured by a bullet wound. After undergoing reconstructive surgery, Nelly emerges with a new face, one similar but different enough that her former husband, Johnny (Ronald Zehrfeld), doesn’t recognize her. Rather than reveal herself, Nelly walks into a dangerous game of duplicity and disguise as she tries to figure out if the man she loves may have been the one who betrayed her to the Nazis. Evoking the shadows and haunted mood of post-war Berlin, Phoenix weaves a complex tale of a nation’s tragedy and a woman’s search for answers as it builds towards an unforgettable, heart-stopping climax.

SPEAKING FOR THE TREES

SPEAKING FOR THE TREES: A FILM FESTIVAL EXPLORING THE IMPACTS OF FOREST MANAGEMENT IN WESTERN OREGON

Presented by Oregon Wild, Pacific Rivers, Forest Services Employees for Environmental Ethics and the Many Rivers Chapter of the Sierra Club

Forest management issues in western Oregon have been the source of decades of conflict and controversy:  From logging of old-growth forests, extensive clearcuts, pesticide spraying, or streamside protections. These issues are often discussed by breaking down forest management along ownership lines (National Forests, BLM lands, state forests, private timber lands), but the impacts of logging practices are felt, and shared, across boundaries.

The films offered at this event explore current management of private and federal forest lands, the environmental consequences of this management, alternative ways of managing forests, and policy changes needed to protect our health, water, wildlands, and wildlife. Viewed together, they tempt thoughtful conversation about blurred lines, public values, and the future of our forests and all they provide.

Sponsoring organizations will be available with information in the lobby before and after the film screenings.

About the films:

“Behind the Emerald Curtain,” a film by Shane Anderson. Presented by Pacific Rivers. Running time 30 min.

Filmed in coastal communities impacted by private logging practices, the film explores the impacts of current forestry practices that put at risk air and water quality, fish habitat, and quality of life for coastal residents.  It seeks to highlight the importance of our intertwined lands by exploring the relationship between forest management and impacts on local communities.

 

“Drift: A Community Seeking Justice,” a film by University of Oregon students int he Environmental Leadership Program. Running time 20 min.

This film was created in collaboration with residents of Gold Beach, Oregon and examines the implications of statewide use of aerial herbicide spray on private timberland as illuminated through the Gold Beach experience. Herbicides sprayed from a helicopter leaked onto local communities and drinking water sources. Interviews with residents give insight into the health effects of aerial herbicide drift, the efforts residents made to report exposure, seek medical support and stricter regulations, and changes residents hope to see in the future.

 

“Seeing the Forest,” a film by Alan Honick. Presented by Forest Service Employees for Environmental Ethics. Running time 32 min.

This film tells the story of how the Siuslaw National Forest became a pioneer in ecosystem restoration and innovative management and  how people from all sides have come together to create a sustainable future for the forest and the human community that depends on it.
