Today At The Clinton Street Theater
Carvalho's Journey is a feature length documentary about Solomon Nunes Carvalho (1815-1897) a pioneering American Jewish artist and daguerreotypist born in Charleston, South Carolina. Produced for national broadcast on PBS, film festivals and wide educational distribution, the film tells the saga of Carvalho's extraordinary trip across the west as the first photographer to accompany an exploring expedition to the West. Visually ambitious and extensively researched, the film features interviews with scholars and writers, rare archival materials, original landscape cinematography and re-creations of the daguerreotype process to weave together a compelling narrative of the expansion of the American continent as seen through the eyes of a pioneering American artist.

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST--40th Anniversary
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Oregon classic, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," with a special talk by resident Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin—he will introduce the film with some happy, huggy stories about the Oregon State Hospital.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a 1975 American drama film directed by Miloš Forman, based on the 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey, and starring Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, and Will Sampson. The supporting cast features William Redfield, Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, and Scatman Crothers.
The film was the second to win all five major Academy Awards (Best Picture, Actor in Lead Role, Actress in Lead Role, Director, and Screenplay) following It Happened One Night in 1934, an accomplishment not repeated until 1991 by The Silence of the Lambs.
Now considered to be one of the greatest films ever made, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is No. 33 on the American Film Institute's 100 Years... 100 Movies list. In 1993, it was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
