“A Person Known to Me” is the tale of two detectives traveling across America from 1895 and 1905, taking on cases. Filmmakers Stephanie Argy and Alec Boehm brought their movies “Gandhi at the Bat” and “The Red Machine” to Port Townsend Film Festivals of years past. Then, inspired by their visits here, they drew on the city’s history and geography for this latest movie.
