NWFest42: THE CURIO with 198

TheCurio1

Based on his short film of the same name, Dahl’s first feature weaves documentary and narrative elements into a poignant and funny memoir about the collapse of his marriage and subsequent struggles to find his footing in the bohemian paradise that is Portland, Oregon. His ex-wife, parents, and brothers appear as themselves in the film and scripted material, footage from the director’s married life, and interviews with family and friends paint the picture of a somewhat misguided late-bloomer experiencing all the freedom, loneliness and humiliation that come with having to start over when the bloom is off the rose.

198
Under the pressure of a hanging marriage proposal, a young woman attempts to avoid reality during an ill-conceived night of drinking, smoking…and bowling.

THE CURIO with 198 screens Saturday, November 14 at 8:30pm 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.
