Local Sightings 2019 - Clementine w/ Weekend Tide
$13 General Admission
(Lara Jean Gallagher, Portland, OR, 93 min)
Clementine follows Karen, 29, an unhinged and heartbroken woman unable to let go of her failing relationship with an older and more successful woman. In a desperate plea for attention, she steals away to her estranged lover’s lake house in a remote and beautiful forest in the Pacific Northwest. Here she meets Lana, a provocative young girl hell-bent on moving to California and cultivating an identity that lives up to her expectations of the world outside of her small town.
As Karen grapples with her past and expectations for the future, her relationship with Lana oscillates between that of friends, mother/daughter, sisters, lovers, beholder and beheld. Equal parts psychological drama and sexual coming-of-age story, Clementine is a tense rumination on who to love and how to let go.
Screens with... Weekend Tide
(Julio Ramirez, Seattle, WA, 19 min)
While clinging to every hour the weekend holds, four college friends try to escape their dramatic past—only to find that it takes a turn for the worse once reality sinks in.
