Mar 19 & 21: Movie Fugue by A. Smoczynska at the Portland International FF

The 42nd Portland International Film Festival presents Fugue / Fuga, directed by Agnieszka Smoczyńska. The film shown at the 2018 Cannes FF is a feministic take on a story of a woman returning back to her family afflicted with a dissociative fugue state (loosing memory, but not completely). Ms. Smoczyńska conquered the international FF scene with her crazy & funny 2015 debut movie The Lure / Córki dansingu featuring blood-thirsty Vistula mermaids performing at a seedy Warsaw dance club.
