About this Event

POW FILM FEST OPENING NIGHT SCREENING ! Tunes by DJ Black Daria before and after the film!

SALOME:

The passion project of Russian-born actress and producer Alla Nazimova, this outrageously stylized adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s notorious play—based on the biblical story of the teenage princess who lusts after the severed head of John the Baptist—is a delirious, decadent avant-garde spectacle. Its status as a queer classic rests both on its Art Nouveau-meets-camp style and on the legend that the bisexual Nazimova cast the film entirely with gay actors. America's first art film!

Fin de Cinema is a recurring live film score series curated by Gina Altamura. The series was established in 2009, and allows prominent Portland- based pop and experimental musicians to re-interpret the soundtracks to art films. Fin de Cinema is an audio-visually immersive, deeply collaborative series which seeks to give new life to classic films. Visually rich cinematic landscapes are paired with daring musicians in a variety of genres.

Indira Valey (Portland, OR) is an avant garde multi-instrumentalist and performance artist who channels powerful songs that reverberate with the voices of her ancestors and speak directly to modern audiences. Her ancient-sounding, resonant voice is a force of nature, and she utilizes looping technology, effects pedals, and a unique palette of instruments (including flugelhorn, timpani, kalimba, electric guitar) to create mesmerizing and memorable live performances that are ever-changing due to her spontaneous improvisational magic. Her debut album Recordar is a bilingual collection of oceanically soothing, powerfully healing songs about memory and finding your own inner power. In Spanish, "recordar" means both "to remember" and "to pass back through the heart.

Dolphin Midwives ( S age Elaine Fisher) is an American composer, performer and sound artist based in Portland, OR. She is best known for her performance project, Dolphin Midwives, which abstracts harp, voice and percussion using electronics, extended techniques and ritual processes. She explores themes of empathy, natural cycles, vulnerability, transformation and technology through social experiment, meditation, psychoacoustics and magic. She has performed at various contemporary art centers and venues on the west coast, including Disjecta, S1, PICA, Coaxial Arts, and Columbia City Theatre, and shared her work at TBA Fest, Debacle Fest, PDX POP NOW, Olympia Experimental Music Festival, Subharmonic, The Wayward Music Series and the CMG’s Improv Summit of Portland. In 2016, she released Orchid Milk, her first recording under the Dolphin Midwives moniker. Her sophomore album, Liminal Garden, was released Jan 18, 2019 through Sounds et al/Beacon Sound.
