Local Sightings Opening Night: Sprawl to Action
Thursday, September 24th. 8:00pm.

Sprawl to Action

Citizens of Seattle: take a minute for your city! Tonight we marshall together short films that capture moments of change in Seattle from contemporary times and past eras. From today: the suddenly booming weed industry, rapidly transforming neighborhoods, and lyrical musings about technology in our lives. From yester-year: cultural memories long-forgotten, ideas for a future that's now past, and a grassroots movement that physically shaped the city. Sprawl to Action includes the launch of Citizen Minutes, a new community video project of Northwest Film Forum.

Followed by opening night party with DJ Erin Res
Sponsored by [;Naked City Brewery];

Film Program:

Smoked Seattle
Kate Hess - 10 min
When her wannabe-starlet life gets turned upside-down by a bad breakup and she finds herself living with her pot-cookie-baking father, Chelsea must learn to face adulthood or get left behind.

Alex Berry - 12 min
Queer artist discusses the ways in which the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle is changing over time.

Representing the Present
Dani Glovin - 5 min
A series of images that capture the tension between "spontaneous impulses of experience and the mechanical laws of the instruments" used to capture those experiences.

Mayor of Ballard
Titus Richard - 6 min
A blacksmith, a jeweler, an archer, and a father, David Tuthill shares his own experiences and small pieces of wisdom that he's gained from living in Ballard for many years.

Seattle Freeway Revolt
Minda Martin - 7 min
In the 60s and 70s, many Seattle citizens formed a movement to oppose the construction and expansion of freeways that would have destroyed the heart of Seattle: this film captures the integral, if little known, facet of the city's heritage.

Clyde Petersen - 2 min
The shortly lived "limp-wave" band ManDate left a lasting impression with bold visual tracks that accompanied radical songs.  

What is so great about Seattle?
Action: Better City - 1968 - 17 min
A volunteer effort initiated in Seattle in 1967, Action: Better City convened "a band of some fifty architects and planners" in a study of their city. The expansive project included the production of this film.

Reed O'Beirne - 16mm - 2000 - 3 min
An evocative documentary about the Kingdome's final breaths and demolition in 200.
