Screening of Woodsrider
Friday, December, 15 | 7:30pm
The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will screen the 2017 Oregon-made independent documentary film “Woodsrider” Friday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Tucked in the trees of Oregon’s Mount Hood, Sadie Ford, an introspective young snowboarder, camps alone, anticipating a winter of adventure and self-renewal in an acclaimed experimental, moody documentary.
Accompanied by her dog Scooter, her only constant companion, Ford snowshoes to build her nestled tent site, a place she feels more at ease than anywhere with four walls. Brief times in town provide breaths of social interaction and connection, but otherwise she chooses to spend time in solitude.
Striking a youthful yet elegiac tone, “Woodsrider” has been described as a meditative film about identity, home, and the way human experience echoes that of the natural world.
Directed and produced by Cambria Matlow, the film lasts 83 minutes. Matlow plans to attend the presentation of “Woodsrider” to discuss the film and answer questions. She screened her earlier film “Burning in the Sun” at the Hoffman Center last April.
