This program of old and new explores memory, observation, and film’s 
unique and varied abilities to visualize the act of remembering. 
Portland filmmaker Pam Minty’s newest film /Direct Route/ observes a 
blind woman navigating her domestic surroundings alongside landscapes 
and recollections prior to losing her vision. Through conversations and 
word puzzles with her daughter, a story emerges about the relationship 
between memory, sense of direction, and the texture of experience.

Complimenting her film is Bruce Baillie’s classic /Roslyn Romance/, a 
correspondence and collage film of family photos and superimposed 
imagery that invoke the cycle of the life; Ute Aurand’s /Maria/, an 
observational portrait of the filmmaker’s dear friend; and fellow German 
filmmaker Maria Lang’s /Family Crypt—A Love Letter to My Mother/, 
through which the filmmaker as daughter speaks about herself, her 
family, and their love, despite invisible walls and barriers.

Filmmaker Pam Minty will be in attendance.

This screening is a co-presentation with the Northwest Film Center.
