Friday April 20 – Thursday April 26

Featured Film:

Abbas Kiarostami and Guy Maddin at the Northwest Film Forum

Once again the NWFF hosts the highlights of the film week, this time with the latest from Canadian weirdo Guy Maddin, The Green Fog, and the final film from the great Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami, 24 Frames. Both are experiments: Maddin’s film reconstructs a version of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo using archival images of San Francisco; while Kiarostami’s imagines what happens before and after a series of 24 still images. Both are essential film events of this year, and you can only catch them this weekend.
