5 Lesbians Eating Quiche

Categories:
Date: 
Fri, 11/28/2014 - 7:30pm - Sat, 12/20/2014 - 9:00pm
Description: 

Triangle Productions presents a comedic look at the widows of 1956's Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, as they sit in their renovated community center, sharing secrets as the threat of atomic apocalypse nibbles at their heels.

  

The year is 1956, and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein is having its annual quiche breakfast. Daily life is calm and quiet, and excitement is kept to a minimum. However, there's an unexpected item on the agenda this year: the very real threat of atom bombs being dropped on their idyllic town. As the meeting adjourns to the bomb shelter, things take a turn for the worse. Cramped in a small space with the last quiche on Earth and the future uncertain, scandalous secrets come out and tensions -- sexual and otherwise -- rise among the women.

Portland, OR's Debtors' Assembly for Fall 2014

Categories:
Date: 
Thu, 10/30/2014 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Description: 

We invite all to come to the 3rd Debtor's Assembly.  People will learn about the debt system,  listen to personal stories on how debt affects our daily lives, and connect with groups working to redefine our funding priorities, and organize as debtors who are Not A Loan.

At Strike Debt Portland, we believe that many forms of debt -- medical, student, consumer -- promote poverty. We believe that all debt is connected and affects everybody. We believe that debt is just one way to fund goods and services, meaning that debt is not inevitable in our society. Examples include college and medicine, where many countries fund these services without insurance or banks.

Description: 

LOT LIZARD

Lot Lizard is a feature documentary about truck stop sex workers in America. There are three million truck drivers and thousands of truck stops throughout the United States. Many of them are frequented by sex workers who truck drivers refer to as lot lizards. The film follows Jennifer, a recovering sex worker who is trying to get her life back on track, Bobby, a man struggling to come to grips with his girlfriend's livelihood, and Betty, an aging sex worker who makes no apologies for her lifestyle. These intimate portraits hint at a broader story about America, how it deals with its 'derelicts,' and how we are implicated as consumers.

Director:  Alexander Perlman
