The 41st Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival: BELLA VISTA

Bella Vista 2

Having recently moved to Missoula, Montana to teach English to a group of international students, thirty-something Doris finds herself alone. She wanders listlessly, but her students possess courage, purpose, and grounding and understand what it takes to belong. Inspired in part by director Vera Brenner-Sung’s experience moving to Montana in 2011, BELLA VISTA is a meditation on displacement and adaptation in the contemporary American West exploring both the perils of rootlessness as well as the optimism of new beginnings. (83 mins.)

BELLA VISTA screens Saturday, November 8 at 4pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of the 41st Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival.
