Documentary Film, DamNation Spaghetti Western Wednesdays What the Bleep Do We Know!? Transgendered Children

Dam removal is one of those topics, like gun control, where a middle ground doesn't seem to thrive. The new documentary DamNation definitely falls in on the dam removal side, but the film mostly seems aimed at people like me: the laymen who see pros and cons on both sides, but are too wishy-washy to make up their damn (sorry) minds.

Much of the film's dam removal slant is aimed at the plight of the salmon, whose migratory cycles have been interrupted by dams. While the film might not win over any dam supporters, it confidently states that the conversation has changed and that dam removal is now the nationwide fad and treats shots of exploding dams as its victory lap. Hosted by a collaboration of conservationists and river enthusiasts including the Western Environmental Law Center (WELC), the Oregon Natural Desert Association (ONDA), the Bend Casting Club, and American Whitewater. Featuring a panel discussion with audience Q&A and a raffle. (JR)

Before there was "Portlandia" to define the soul of the city, a decade ago, this documentary-styled film was the buzz of Portland (where it was filmed). Academy Award winning actress Marlee Matlin plays Amanda, a divorced, middle-aged woman who is thrust into a world where science and spirituality converge. As her entire concept of reality is challenged, so will yours be. See for yourself why this groundbreaking movie became one of the most talked-about and compelling films of the last decade.

June 5, 7:30pm. Old Stone Church, 157 NW Franklin Ave. Suggested donation $4/person.
