Slide Show: Portland's Film Family Tree
Portland is all over the big screen. In recent years, our brooding cloudscapes have provided a moody backdrop for the two lovers in Gus Van Sant’s Restless, the brother-sister detective team in Aaron Katz’s Cold Weather, and the confused souls in Matt McCormick’s Some Days Are Better Than Others, to name but a few. Not bad for a humble riverport 1,000 miles from Los Angeles and 3,000 miles from New York. In our feature, Reel City, we chart the ever-expanding constellation of filmmakers who make today’s rich mix of animation, experimental, and indie features possible. Here's a sampling of their work.
