An exploration of familial relationships between the filmmakers and their respective parents. Both internet-age documentaries examining life in two distinct and varied ways. Maggie Lee’s Mommy is a pared down film with continual visual interest, quick cuts and dynamic editing creating an energy continued throughout Lee’s analysis of life prior and after her mother’s death. Blake’s Vestibular Matching Soundtrack is an exploration of the result of cochlear implants given to her by parental decisions. Altering her life, community, and identity forever; a branched path of children born deaf.

About 5th Avenue Cinema
Oregon’s only student run cinema has been operating non-profit since 1989. Our goals are to provide further education for PSU students interested in film, as well as a fun place for people to see something they wouldn’t ordinarily get to see on the big screen. The general public is always invited to attend and there is FREE POPCORN at every show. Our feature films are presented on 35mm film, with the occasional screening on our rare Norelco 16mm projector.
