KANYE KANYE
(South Africa, 2013, 25 min.)
Directed by Miklas Manneke

KanyeKanye is a small township near Johannesburg, where many years ago two best friends had an argument about which apple tasted better, red or green. This led to a great division, with half the town believing red apples were better and the other half believing green apples were better. A big white line was drawn to keep the two groups separated from each other. Many years later, Thomas, a teenager on the green side of town, falls in love with Thandi, a teenager on the red side. Can their love survive?

Funky Laboratory Escape Room

More info: escapismportland.com

Dr. Zylchov was once a world-famous scientist, known for working on top secret projects in the 1970s. Today, his old laboratories have been cleared of radiation and torn down, and it’s been years since anyone has seen the doctor.

However, recently there have been reports in East Portland of an odd man in a lab coat walking his cats, and strange smells and lights coming from a nearby building. Could it be Dr. Z? The only things known for sure are that Dr. Z has a history of risky experiments, never moved on from the 70s, and loves his cats dearly. Your mission is to enter Dr. Z’s far-out apartment and find the truth! This room is entirely new and different from our previous room, Dr. Zylchov’s laboratory.
