Admission will be a suggested $5 donation, with proceeds to benefit Port Angeles' Klallam Earth Day activities April 20 and the Paddle Journey to Quinault at Taholah from Aug. 1-6.
Nature writer Tim McNulty of Sequim and dancer and storyteller Harvest Moon of the Quinault tribe, both of whom appear in “Mist,” will join moviegoers for the showing in the second-floor banquet room of The Landing, 115 E. Railroad Ave. Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum also plans to attend.
“Harvest Moon will be coming and has offered to tell some legends and perform some music as part of the introduction,” added Carol Gentry of the Center for Community Design.
“Out of the Mist” premiered in December to a full house at Peninsula College's Little Theater, so Carol Gentry and her husband, Mike, co-founders of the Center for Community Design, wanted to bring the picture back for an encore.
The 48-minute film, made in the high country of Olympic National Park by Robert and Kathy Chrestensen of Crest Pictures, stars devoted hikers McNulty, Dave Skinner and Dane Burke, with music and stories by Harvest Moon.
The Center for Community Design also plans a screening and discussion of “Princess Angeline,” a documentary about the daughter of Chief Seattle, at 3 p.m. March 2 at the Elwha Heritage Center, 401 E. First St.
The film, which examines how Princess Angeline came to be one of the last Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890s, was made by Sandra Osawa, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and member of the Makah tribe who grew up in Port Angeles.
Osawa, also maker of the documentary “Maria Tallchief” that screened in Port Angeles last October, is based in Seattle. She plans to be back to join the discussion of “Princess Angeline.”
