PIFF 38: THE DARK VALLEY

TheDarkValley

Greider, a lone traveler, arrives in a small village in the Alps. Initially, no one wants him to stay, especially Brenner, who keeps the community under tight control with his threatening ways. But a few gold coins sway the townsfolk, and they opt to shelter Greider for the winter. Soon a tragic accident leads to the death of one of Brenner’s beloved sons. But when a second son is mysteriously killed, it seems evident that more than coincidence is at play. “The hills are alive with the sound of gunfire in this alpine revenge drama, a superior genre piece which applies classic western tropes to a remote Austrian mountain village.”—The Hollywood Reporter. This year’s Austrian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

THE DARK VALLEY screens Saturday, February 7 at 3:30pm at the Moreland Theater and Sunday, February 15 at 8:45pm at Cinema 21 as part of the 38th Portland International Film Festival.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
