New! Nwfc Friday Film Club: Days Of Heaven says
DAYS OF HEAVEN is the first film in our inaugural Friday Film Club discussion series. Friday Film Club programming will consist of themed series of four films, with one film screened per month.

Our first series, which runs from September-December, coincides with the Portland Art Museum's "Seeing Nature" exhibition, and centers around implicit and explicit depictions of landscape on film. Films will screen early in the afternoon (5:30 p.m.), and will be a followed by a discussion and/or group tour led by Film Center staff and Art Museum docents.


US 1979
Set against the landscape of early-20th century industrial Chicago and subsequently the rippling grain fields of the Texas Panhandle (in actuality central Canada), Malick’s immense tragedy follows lovers-masquerading-as-siblings Abby (Brooke Adams) and Bill (Richard Gere), who travel south in search of steady work but instead become embroiled in a complex, morally questionable love triangle with a nameless farm patriarch (Sam Shepard). Director Terrence Malick won the National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Director Awards and Nestor Almendros won the Oscar for Best Cinematography for—in the words of film historian Peter Biskind—this “dark jewel of a film.” (94 mins.)
