“Sam Now” to Screen in Portland Prior to PBS Release

There will be two theatrical screenings of the #OregonMade documentary SAM NOW in Portland on May 2 and 3. These screenings will directly precede the national PBS release of the film on PBS/Independent Lens May 8.

What do two film-obsessed brothers do to solve a family mystery? Using every video format imaginable, they make a movie as they travel thousands of miles looking for their missing mom. Stitching together 25 years of home videos and filling the gaps in the archive with play, SAM NOW is a mosaic of love, longing and loss, as well as an attempt to overcome intergenerational trauma.
