The first full-length known documentary on the bioregional movement happening in Cascadia is making its Portland premier this Sunday, October 7th at 7PM at Clinton Street Theater. If you’ve wondered what those blue, white and green flags are at various Occupy Portland events, wonder no more.
Exploring the emerging understanding of bioregionalism within the lands and waters of the Northeast Pacific Rim, the filmmakers interweave intimate landscape portraits with human voices both ideological and indigenous. Stories from the land contrast critique of dominant culture, while an embrace of the radical unknown informs a re-birthed and growing culture of resistance. Filming began during the outset of the populist “Occupy” movement, and finished by joining the voices seeking to re-contextualize popular revolt within our life-world as a movement to decolonize, un-occupy, and re-inhabit the living Earth through deep understanding and identification with our specific bioregions (literally “Life-Place”).
Film will be shown at 7PM with a Q&A period with the directors afterwards. For more information, contact cascadianmycelium (AT) gmail.com
