THE PEARL is the third film in our Made in Oregon summer screening series. The film was directed by Jessica Dimmock and Christopher Lamarca.
This free screening will feature a Q&A with Co-Director Christopher LaMarca via skype. We will also offer a small selection of beer and snacks.
The Pearl explores the raw emotional and physical experience of being a middle aged to senior transgender woman against the backdrop of post-industrial logging towns in the Pacific Northwest. The film leans into the struggle of those who were reared and successful as men and have reached middle age or later with a burdensome secret that they can no longer keep.
