Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road – THE STATE OF THINGS

The State of Things

THE STATE OF THINGS is a highly personal film about filmmaking in Europe and America. A film crew finds itself stranded at the westernmost tip of Europe, where the director, Friedrich Munro (Patrick Bauchau), his cameraman (Sam Fuller), scriptwriter, and actors have been abandoned by their producer. After shooting their last feet of film, there is nothing left for them to do but wait. Friedrich finally sets out for Los Angeles to search for the missing producer (Allen Garfield) and finds him hiding in his RV on Sunset Boulevard, attempting to evade a group of unscrupulous gangsters. Friedrich unwillingly finds himself pulled into the underworld conflict, armed with only a Super 8 camera for protection. (100 mins.) 

THE STATE OF THINGS screens Friday, March 11 at 8pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is being presented as part of the touring Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road series.

Tickets available online and at the door.
