We thought the Fin de Cinema had ended. But the rumors of its demise are greatly exaggerated. It is an occasional series of beautiful, exotic and obscure classic art films shown with a live score by Portland musicians.
Akira Kurosawa, one of Asia's most revered filmmakers, made Dreams at 80. It is an episodic mythical abstraction inspired by his dreams. It reads like a Greenway film, without the maddening pretense of Greenway.
Musicians tonight are Jonathan Sielaff of Golden Retriever; Brown Calculus, a project of Vaughn Kimmons - Brown Alice, Popgoji, Tribe Mars and Andre Burgos of Tribe Mars; Akila Fields of Shy Girls and Palm Dat; and atmospheric composer Dylan Stark.
These shows start earlier than most. The ninety minute film will have one or more intermissions.
