Hedda Gabler
Sunday, Oct 10, 9:30pm

Hedda Gabler
(Paul Willis, 2004, DV, 90min.)
As a founder of Printer's Devil Theater, Paul Willis staged a live performance of Hedda Gabler in 2000 to widespread acclaim. With his film, he brings the same actors from the play and transforms the live performance into a motion picture with ingenious artistic dexterity. The production used MiniDV video cameras and post production manipulation at Flying Spot to successfully capture an oppressive suburban heat which quickly turns into a powder keg of re-ignited desire.


"This visually-stunning adaptation of the Henrik Ibsen play transposes the action into a contemporary setting in which the newly-married, quick-witted and energetic Hedda (Heidi Schreck) and her bland but stable husband George (Matt Ford) have recently arrived in their brand new home. When a friend informs them that George's professorship at the university might be threatened by the rebound of his academic and onetime romantic rival Eilert (Deron Bos), everyone's insecurities bubble up to the surface."


Hedda Gabler was made possible through support from The Northwest Film Forum, Flying Spot and the Allen Foundation for the Arts.

What happened to Almost Live?

Reruns* come on every Saturday at this time. Every Saturday night hubby and I asked each other why it isn't on the air. It was hilarious, we rarely missed an episode. I am sure one of you out there knows WHY? Cancelled? Moved on? I need full details, please.


*added the word rerun after I posted!

Is this your bike?

hannahadams just bought me a bike for $15 off the street. It’s likely hot, and if we can figure out who it belongs to, we’d like to return it. If you’re missing a bike or know someone who’s missing a bike, please take a look at this link and tell me if it’s yours. Until I hear back from someone, I’m going to ride it to work. If it will make it that far :)

Another Local sightings entry

Hi all,

Just thought I'd follow up on the other Local Sightings posting, and implore each and every one of you to get out there and support some local filmmakers. I've got two short films playing at the fest. One under the SHORTS: TRAGEDY & COMEDY (mine's "Kitchen Soup for the Soul") and SHORTS: DANCING & DATING (mine's "Terry"). Terry is playing Sunday, Oct 10 @9pm and again on Thursday, Oct 14 at 7:30 (which is a free screening!!). Kitchen Soup is playing, well, yesterday, and Monday, Oct 11 @ 9:30pm.

1515 12th Avenue between Pike and Pine, next to the Police station. I'll be at all the screenings, say hello! :) My website with more info is http://www.gadzookfilms.com - thanks for the shameless plug!

hello...
my boyfriend, roommate, and i are thinking about moving to seattle in may when our lease is up. i've been told that it's super expensive to live there, however, and that there aren't many jobs...are these just rumors to dissuade me from leaving florida?
any input would be awesome...
thanks
ashley

Devastation

Another painful overtime loss for the Seahawks. This one really hurt. We're still in 1st place in the West, but next week against New England is going to be really tough. At least they set a Qwest Field attendance record for a football game--the crowd was really into it.
