Portland Center for Public Humanities presents “The Double Life of Veronique” and “Heathers”

We’re delighted to pair with Oregon Psychoanalytic Center and Northwest Film Center School of Film for two films next week at 5th Avenue Cinema (510 SW Hall Street)! Both events are free and open to the public.

“The Double Life of Veronique”
Wednesday, May 21 at 7pm.

In partnership with Oregon Psychoanalytic Center, we’re excited to present this lush film from Polish director Krzysztof Kieślowski, released in 1991. It features the stunning Irene Jacobs as both Weronika and Véronique, two women who share a special, inexplicable bond in a story that explores love, intuition, and identity. Discussion to follow the film! We’d love the contribution of your company and thoughts about this beautiful work. Read up on Slavoj Žižek’s take on the film here.

The Northwest Film Center School of Film teams up with PCPH for a fun film screening of this delightful dark comedy with Winona Ryder and Christian Slater – 25 years after its initial release,Heathers has found a new life on Broadway and The Atlantic recently sang its praises as a precursor to other high school hits like Mean Girls. These partnerships are also informational sessions for NWFC’s School of Film – representative will be on hand to answer any questions, and passes and other prizes for NWFC screenings/swag are up for grabs for attendees!
