Jacob Pander’s award winning first feature opens at Cinema 21 on Nov. 6.  D. K. Holmes reviews Selfless.

Without having seen Selfless, but having seen the trailer, I have to point out an artistic legacy to which the Pander Brothers appear to conform. Both Ernest Haycox’ Canyon Passage ( 1946), set in Oregon’s frontier past, and  Ursula LeGuin’s The Lathe of Heaven (1979), set in Oregon’s near future, had plots which centered around theft – as does the Panders’ new film, which is set in present day. I leave it to the readers of Oregon Movies, A to Z to offer their own reasons why Portland artists obsessively tell and re-tell this story.

I certify Selfless as an Oregon film.
