NWFest: DIRECT ROUTE with HERS IS WHERE YOURS BEGINS

DirectRoute1

A blind woman (Minty’s mother) navigates her domestic surroundings and landscapes while recollecting these places prior to losing her vision. Through conversations and word puzzles, a story emerges about the relationship between memory, sense of direction, and the texture of experience.

HERS IS WHERE YOURS BEGINS
McIntyre mingles a sense of drowning with a sense of dreaming, and explores the overriding impulse to submerge our sorrows with anger. “My mother died of cancer at age 45, leaving behind an angry teenager who would forever grapple with feelings of loss, grief and longing. She has and will continue to inform all my work. Behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin.”—Janet McIntyre

DIRECT ROUTE with HERS IS WHERE YOURS BEGINS screens Friday, November 13 at 5pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is showing as part of the 42nd Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
