Trailer of the Day: SURVEYOR from the 25 New Faces of Independent Film


Filmmaker Magazine‘s annual “25 New Faces of Independent Film” shines a spotlight on emerging filmmakers to keep an eye on. This year’s list includes three Northwest filmmakers whose work is finding national, as well as regional, attention. The program includes Seattle filmmakers Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandiland’s THE ROPER, in which Kendrick, a young calf roper in Louisiana, dreams of one day making it to the Las Vegas rodeo finals (6 mins.); Seattle filmmaker Scott Blake’s SURVEYOR, in which a government agent surveyor in the last days of the Mexican-American War attempts to return home after mapping land on the western frontier, in a journey that becomes a nightmarish trek through a gothic American landscape (25 mins.); and Corvallis filmmaker Nandan Rao’s HAWAIIAN PUNCH, an unconventional buddy movie in which two young Mormon men on a mission term in Hawaii spend their days cliff diving, moped riding, and conversing about relationships and religion. (60 mins.) (Total program running time: 91 mins.)

Director Nandan Rao will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A.



25 NEW FACES OF INDEPENDENT FILM screens Thursday, September 12 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.
