Field Guide to November Days

Friday, July 2, 2010, 8:00 pm

The second feature from Portland filmmaker Nick Peterson (Yellow), Field Guide to November Days was made entirely with bikes instead of any motorized transport. Everyone working on the film biked to set and everything (including furniture) was pulled by bike (except for one trip to the coast!).

The film focuses on Matt and Natalie, recently separated, who resume their relationship after a chance meeting. However, they soon fall back into old destructive patterns, and they separate once again. To cope with the loss, Natalie isolates herself and experiments with a radically different place in society. Matt finds solace in his friendship with Christian, who is gay. Confused by their companionship, he begins to question his own sexual identity.
