Featured Film:

Jauja at the Northwest Film Forum

Viggo Mortensen stars in the latest from acclaimed Argentinian director Lisandro Alonso, playing a Danish engineer in 19th Century Patagonia who must set out across the desert in search of his runaway daughter. Inspiring comparisons as diverse as The Searchers, the mystical films of Apichatpong Weerasethakul and the Insanity Pepper episode of The Simpsons, it was one of the best films of 2014. Our Preview.
