Worlds apart, a five-star chef, a twelve year-old girl, and a retired schoolteacher discover how their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement in the fight against hunger. This documentary tells tale of these remarkable individuals and the unexpected challenges they face. Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions. Award-winning chef Narayanan Krishnan, fighting against the caste system in India, quits his job to begin a life of cooking and hand-delivering fresh meals to hundreds of people in his hometown. Katie Stagliano’s planting of a single cabbage seedling when she was nine years old blossoms into Katie’s Krops, a nonprofit with 73 gardens dedicated to ending hunger. Retired middle school teacher Mr. Law battles personal health issues as he hand delivers more than a thousand sandwiches nightly to the hungry in Minneapolis. This documentary tells the tale of these remarkable individuals and the challenges they face when upholding their values and forging their own path of service to others.

Bird on a Wire (A documentary about our man Leonard Cohen) and a short slide show / talk illustrating points in history when art defeated Fascism In the film, we follow Leonard on his 1972 tour. He is met with crowds who treat him like a messiah come to heal them, and he does his best. Beautiful live footage is combined with a very intimate look at Leonard's inner life, doubts, depressions and triumphs. A beautiful tribute to the man and an inspiring film for anyone trying to create art that is sincere and galvanizing. The documentary will be followed by a 20 minute slide show and talk by Eric Isaacson of Mississippi Records about arts effectiveness in fighting Fascism. The show will move very fast through some inspiring vignettes about times when art was meaningful and effective tool for social change during Fascist regimes and also offer strategies for dealing with things in our current world order. All proceeds from the show will go to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. PLEASE BUY TICKETS IN ADVANCE. IF WE SELL ENOUGH SOON WE WILL ADD A SECOND SHOWING AT 9 PM. $9 (All ticket proceeds go to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU)

RUN Centerpiece Film at Hollywood Theater Directed by Philippe Lacôte Côte d'Ivoire, 2014 , 102 min. Centerpiece Film Sponsored by Portland State University Black Studies Department In Philippe Lacôte’s remarkable debut feature film Run, he depicts the recent tumultuous history of the Ivory Coast through the journey of his protagonist Run, so-named because as Run explains, “As life changes, I flee.” After assassinating the Prime Minister, Run seeks refuge at the home of his friend Assa (Isaach De Bankolé). While in hiding, he reflects upon the many paths that led him to this place: his childhood apprenticeship with the village rainmaker; his introduction to manhood with the food-eater entertainer Gladys; and his membership in the Young Patriots, a group of young men who mostly play at being revolutionaries but act more like thugs. With an impassioned, poetic eye, the film charts how much the country has changed in the last 20 years, and in the process changed the man named Run. The story is a strong allegory for the people and history of contemporary Ivory Coast. In French with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

Seen through the eyes of small, midsize and large Mexican maize producers, SUNÚ knits together different stories from a threatened rural world. It journeys deep into the heart of a country where people realize their determination to stay free, to work the land and cultivate their seeds, to be true to their cultures and forms of spirituality, all in a modern world that both needs them and despises them. SUNÚ reveals how maize and everything it gives life to could be lost forever, and shares a generous tapestry of simple, heartfelt messages for the farmers of the world and the city dwellers who could lose the capability to make important choices unless they act soon. Speical musical guest Edna Vazquez will perform before the film. More information and tickets at www.portlandecofilmfest.org The Portland EcoFilm Festival is the premier environmental film festival in the US Pacific Northwest, showcasing the very best films about nature, the environment, outdoor pursuits and eco-conscious living. The fest features an annual four-day festival and a year-round film series.
