Gimme Some Truth: The Great Northwest

Sat, Nov 5 / 7 pm
Directed by Matt McCormick
2012, USA, 70 min

Introduction and Q&A by Matt McCormick.

An experimental documentary based on the re-creation of a 3,200 mile road-trip made in 1958 by four Seattle women who thoroughly documented their journey in an elaborate scrapbook. Fifty years later, Portland filmmaker Matt McCormick found that scrapbook in a thrift store, and in 2010 set out on the road, following their route as precisely as possible and searching out every stop in which the ladies had documented.

Plays with

No Cultural Value / Dir. Mike Maryniuk, 2016, Canada, 19 min / Manitoba folk painter and sculptor Armand Lemiez tried unsuccessfully for nearly 10 years to will his land, sculptures and 500 paintings to the Province of Manitoba, who assessed his work “to have no cultural value”.

Presented in partnership with the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation.
