WOODSRIDER: A FILM BY CAMBRIA MATLOW

SATURDAY, JANUARY 27 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30; $5 admission.

Tucked in the trees of Oregon’s Mount Hood, an introspective young snowboarder camps alone, anticipating a winter of adventure and self-renewal in this experimental, moody documentary.  Tenacious, 19-year old Sadie Ford operates within the poetic persona of a searching pioneer. Her footsteps track over the town of Government Camp’s mountain landscape, her dog Scooter her only constant companion.  Deep among the Douglas firs Sadie snowshoes to build her nestled tentsite, a place she feels more at ease than anywhere with four walls.  Riding sessions and house parties in town provide breaths of social interaction and connection, but otherwise she chooses to spend time in solitude.  Sadie’s simple quest for joy is tempered by melancholy when increasingly warm temperatures on the mountain cause rain to replace snow, and the winter season grows shorter.  Striking a youthful yet elegiac tone, WOODSRIDER is a meditative film about identity, home, and the way that human experience echoes that of the natural world.  Winner, Best Experimental Feature at 2017 Santa Cruz Film Festival. Directed by Portland, OR filmmaker and LA-native Cambria Matlow. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE!

Swampy's Diaries

For the “bootleg artist” known as Swampy, the world is an endless living canvas. Variations on his signature “swampdonkey” tag — the skull of some imaginary tusked creature — can be found in almost every imaginable setting across America: dilapidated skyscrapers in Oakland, Calif.; train trestles in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; gallery walls in Atlanta or Brooklyn.
