Poet Walt Curtis (pictured above) was in the cast. Van Sant first read Curtis’ unpublished novella, Mala Noche, as a result of this shoot.
Property is about a group of Portland friends who attempt to pool their financial resources to buy a house together. It gave a start to writer-director Penny Allen, cinematographer Eric Edwards, director Gus Van Sant and actor Cork Hubbert. It built on the careers of writer Walt Curtis (who appears as himself) and painter Henk Pander, who did set design.
I hereby claim Property as an Oregon film.
