SeaDoc Events Coming Up

We’ve got a couple SeaDoc sponsored screenings coming up in the next few weeks. We hope you can join us!

This week, we’re meeting on Monday (Feb. 29th) rather than Tuesday for a special screening of Drawing the Tiger from our very own Amy Benson (SeaDoc Steering Committee member) and Scott Squire. You won’t want to miss this amazing film that delves into the complex story of one girl’s experience being “saved” by a western educational non-profit. Drawing the Tiger explores the promise and pitfalls of western development in the lives of an ordinary Nepali family.

Andrew Parker of Toronto Film Scene wrote this after screening the film last year at Hot Docs Film Festival.

“Filmmakers Amy Benson and Scott Squire know they have something special and they never rush or skew their footage – which looks gorgeous and somehow makes the film feel even more tragic.

It’s a quietly powerful film that will stick with viewers long after it ends…It’s a major work by people who clearly put everything they had and more into making it.”

Don’t miss Drawing the Tiger! Monday, February 29th 7pm at the Northwest Film Forum.


Theater schedules are often frustratingly hard to nail down in advance, so looking forward to March is difficult. However, one film will be hitting the Grand Illusion Cinema on Tuesday March 15th. Requiem for the American Dream features Noam Chomsky discussing the implications of financial inequality on our nation and culture. Looks to be a fascinating film.

We’ll keep you posted as more screenings come our way.
