Blank City Comes to the Port City

Blank City is film that documents a film scene – particularly that of the late 70’s in downtown NYC. Like the No Wave punk and art rock of the time (some of which can be heard on the soundtrack), the filmmakers and work covered here laid the groundwork for much of what would come in the following decades.

Featuring a who’s who of independent musicians, artists, and filmmakers (Jim Jarmusch, John Waters, Debbie Harry, Fab 5 Freddy, Thurston Moore, Richard Kern, Amos Poe, etc), Céline Danhier’s documentary will screen here in Portland at the Portland Museum of Art Friday through Sunday this week. Get details on the screenings here.
