February 6, 7 Stratman on Film

I first came across experimental filmmaker adventurer Deborah Stratman through Matt McCormick's Experimental and Documentary Film Festival. Matt distributes some of Stratman's films. Stratman's Kings of the Sky is the fruit of traveling lightly with camera into Uygurland, Western China. I worked on a project with a stellar Uygur translator, but we didn't talk politics, so the idea of tightrope walking as a cultural meme is cool. Stratman has formed a relationship with Portland as a result of that initial encounter too. Sunday she shows films and workshops with aspiring filmmakers at the NW Film Center. Monday she speaks at PSU. Recommended.

Workshops and consultation through the Film Center 10AM-3 Sunday $20

Screenings at the Film Center Sunday 7:30PM Whitsell Auditorium $10

Talk Monday in the Shattuck Hall Annex, 1914 SW Park Avenue, at the corner of SW Broadway and Hall on the PSU campus. 7:30PM Free
