AMAZON QUEEN is made in the spirit of Indiana Jones and Key Largo and Fitzcarraldo. It's a festival and audience favorite as the story appeals to all that enjoy romantic light-adventure movies combined with suspense crime thrillers - and all set in an exotic land. This is Portland director Marlin Darrah's 2nd dramatic feature. He's been called "The world's most traveled filmmaker," having produced films in more than 140 countries. Actors featured are Massi Furlan (Jumanji and Bad Boys for Life), and Alfono DiLuca (CW's Jane the Virgin series). Preceding the screening, Marlin will introduce the film and tell amusing stories about the making of this adventurous indie movie - shot entirely in Brazil just a few months ago.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Raya and the Last Dragon travels to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well. Raya and the Last Dragon features the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya, a warrior whose wit is as sharp as her blade, and Awkwafina as the magical, mythical, self-deprecating dragon named Sisu. Characters also include a street-savvy 10-year-old entrepreneur named Boun, the formidable giant Tong and a thieving toddler Noi with her band of Ongis. Directed by Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada and produced by Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho.
