alt Laura Poitras, Academy Award winning director of CITIZENFOUR, returns with her most personal and intimate film to date. Filmed over six years, RISK is a complex and volatile character study that collides with a high stakes election year and its controversial aftermath. Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organization he leads and fracture the movement he inspired. Capturing this story with unprecedented access, Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle. In a new world order where a single keystroke can alter history, "Risk" is a portrait of power, betrayal, truth, and sacrifice.

Documentary; In English; 87 minutes

alt The small town of Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina has become a source of wonder and mystery after six children claimed to have witnessed apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1981. Now, millions of people have made pilgrimages to the town to see for themselves. Though skeptics believe the visions to be a hoax, and the Catholic Church has not endorsed the apparitions, many who travel there describe a sense of peace or calm that they have never experienced before.

The proceeds from these shows will benefit St. Francis Dining Hall in SE Portland.
