The OregonMade Creative Foundation has teamed up with four of the best independent cinemas in Portland, The Northwest Film Center, The Hollywood Theatre, Clinton Street Theater and Cinema 21, to announce the third film of The Portland Circuit, a unique program designed to give locally produced, #OregonMade feature length films a short theatrical distribution window in the city. Next up is Tara Johnson-Medinger’s beautiful coming of age story:
MY SUMMER AS A GOTH is about the sometimes painful-often entertaining-search for identity and love in adolescence. After the sudden death of her father, 16-year-old, Joey Javis is sent to stay with her eccentric grandparents while her author mother promotes her latest novel. Joey promptly falls for the beguiling Goth boy next door, Victor, and is transformed by him and his merry band of misfits in black.
Set in present-day Portland, My Summer as a Goth navigates Joey's relaonships with her new friends, her family and herself, and will resonate with anyone who survived the social alienation of adolescence-and that first summer heartbreak.
Writer/Director Tara Johnson-Medinger in attendance for a Q+A after the show.
