This Thursday, see the collected works of Kurtis Hough, Portland abstract animator extraordinaire.

Winner of the 2014 Oregon Media Arts Fellowship, Portland filmmaker Kurtis Hough’s work blends animation, documentary, and the surreal into an investigation of the musical undertones found in abstract patterns of nature. Beginning with time-lapse photography of landscapes from around the planet, Hough’s work captures the lyricism and movements of unseen microscopic formations and natural events that typically go unnoticed by the human eye. The program includes the premiere of his latest film, PAINTED HILLS (2016) as well as a dozen other works, such as STUMBLE THEN RISE ON SOME AWKWARD MORNING (2004), MOSSGROVE/ BED OF MOSS (2011), CRYOSPHERE (2012) and TO SEE MORE LIGHT (2015).

Hough will be present to introduce the films. Hosted by the Northwest Film Center.
