EverOut is The Mercury's new website devoted to things to do in Portland and across the Pacific Northwest. It has all the same things you're used to seeing from Mercury EverOut, just in a new spot!
If your nerves are frazzled from the Trump-incited mobs around the country this week, escape into the world of virtual cinema using our roundup of new streaming options through local theaters. You'll find them all below, from Victor Kossakowsky's experimental film Gunda via Northwest Film Center to Gillian Wallace Horvat's fourth-wall-breaking satire I Blame Society via the Clinton Street Theater, along with nationwide picks like the Netflix limited series History of Swear Words, hosted by Nicolas Cage. Plus, if you haven't heard, the Mercury's amateur porn film festival HUMP! is accepting submissions through this Saturday, January 8, as is the stoner short film fest SPLIFF, through March 5!
LOCALLY STREAMING: NEW & NOTEWORTHY
A mother pig, a flock of chickens, and a herd of cows take the place of human subjects in Victor Kossakowsky's sleepy, experimental portrait of non-human life. You shouldn't be at all surprised to learn that it's executive-produced by Joaquin Phoenix.
