Northwest Tracking: An Evening with Elijah Hasan


Portland writer, composer, photographer, and filmmaker Elijah Hasan’s work has been strongly influenced by his reflections on the human condition. His experimentation with stop-motion photography and symbolism immerses the audience in an array of metaphoric imagery, providing an opportunity to reflect on unfamiliar ground and to see, for the first time, from a path they’ve walked a thousand times. Tonight we present a collection of his short films, including IS THAT ME (5 mins.), COINED (7 mins.), CYCHO (18 mins.), LAYING AWAKE (8 mins.), BESIDE MYSELF (10 mins.)—finishing with RHYTHM AND ROMANCE (27 mins.), a documentary piece spotlighting Chuck Israels, the world-renowned jazz bassist and composer, from his younger days playing with the Bill Evans Trio to his current adventures in jazz right here in the Rose City where he has made his home. (90 mins.)

Director Elijah Hasan will be in attendance to introduce the program.

AN EVENING WITH ELIJAH HASAN screens Thursday, March 6 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.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
