Manzanita Film Series Presents
Film Canopy Stories, Part 2
Friday, August 23 | 7:30pm
Doors open at 7:00pm
Hoffman Center for the Arts will screen the second part of the 2019 documentary anthology “Canopy Stories,” produced by Oregon independent filmmakers
The seven short films, produced at NW Documentary, tell the stories of individual trees located throughout Portland. The stories are about families, neighborhoods, and transformations long forgotten.
The Hoffman Center screened “Part 1” of the anthology in July.
The films’ focus ranges from activists camping in trees to strangers caring for the ghosts of pioneers, from globe-trekking botanists in search of rare specimens to everyday citizens transforming their neighborhood into an urban oasis.
Included in the second anthology are “Rosa’s Tree” by David-Paul B. Hedberg, “The Seven-Thousand Trees of Dharma Rain” by Christopher Baier, “No More Dope Parties” by Cambria Matlow, “The Lost Redwood” by Jesse Andrew Clark, “The Activist Tree” by Zoe Gieringer, “82nd & Verdant” by James Krzmarzick, and “Heroes and Villains” by David-Paul B. Hedberg
One of the filmmakers will attend the screening to discuss the works, as well as NW Documentary, the Portland-based organization whose mission is to practice, teach, and share the art of non-fiction storytelling.
