Film Synopsis:

During World War II, the Civil Aeronautics Authority selects 13 black cadets to become part of an experimental program at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. The program aims at training "colored personnel" to become fighter pilots for the Army. However, discrimination, lack of institutional support and the racist belief that these men lacked the intelligence and aptitude for the job dog their every step. Despite this, the Tuskegee Airmen, as they become known, more than prove their worth.

We are excited to announce a showing of the documentary, Daughter of a Lost Bird, at Open Space Event Studios in collaboration with the Deschutes Public Library on Saturday, April 9th.

Synopsis courtesy of Women Make Movies: The documentary Daughter of a Lost Bird follows Kendra, an adult Native adoptee, as she reconnects with her birth family, discovers her Lummi heritage, and confronts issues of her own identity. Her singular story echoes many affected by the Indian Child Welfare Act and the Indian Adoption Project.

The documentary Daughter of a Lost Bird explores ethics surrounding Native American adoption via a singular story as an entry point into a more complicated national issue. In many ways, Kendra Potter is a perfect example of cultural assimilation, a modern representation of the painful phrase, "kill the Indian, save the man." She is a thriving woman who grew up in a loving, upper middle-class white family, and feels no significant loss with the absence of Native American culture or family in her life. And yet, as a Blackfeet/Salish woman, director Brooke Swaney could not imagine that Kendra could be content or complete without understanding her heritage. So together they embark on a 7 year journey.

Doors Open @ 2:30PM | No Entry After 3:10PM

Tickets are going fast! Join Open Space and Comedy & A Cause for a comedy show you won't want to miss! Jeff Dye stars in NBC’s new eclectic comedy adventure series “Better Late Than Never.” This exciting project will follow the travel of Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman as Jeff gives the adventure of a lifetime. Jeff is coming off of NBC’s alternative comedy-variety series hit called “I Can Do That”. Which he is extremely proud of and taught him…. Dye is a nationally touring comedian, actor, host, prankster and Bigfoot enthusiast.

Raised in Seattle, this class clown started doing comedy at Giggles Comedy Club right out of high school and was first nationally recognized on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” where he finished third after only three years into his comedy career. Since then he has had two of his own shows on MTV (“Money From Strangers,” “Numbnuts”), his own “Comedy Central Presents” special and stared on numerous other TV projects, including “Girl Code” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Dye’s passion is bringing love and positivity through laughter to everyone he encounters.

Amanda Arnold, who headlined our February Comedy & A Cause Comedy Competition, will be opening up the night. Hit the link in our bio for ticket info. This show WILL sell out, so get your tickets early! This event is also raising money for SAW (Save a Warrior) to benefit veterans 😎

Mark your calendar! The next Bend Production Society Happy Hour Meet Up is on Thursday, March 31st, from 5-8:30 PM. We had such an awesome turnout for our last meeting in December and cannot wait to see you all again. There will be tons of time to talk about projects we’re working on and how we can support each other in the industry. Everyone in the photo/film production industry is invited!

Join us for a theater workshop that explores movement, presence and connection with practitioners Ann Boyd and Kurt Brocker. Ann and Kurt worked in the Chicago dance and theatre communities for twenty-five years. Kurt trained at DePaul University’s Theatre School and worked as an actor throughout the city. Ann worked as a choreographer and director and full-time faculty coordinating the Movement for Actors and Theatre Devising at Columbia College Chicago.

Kurt and Ann share a love of constraint-based ensemble practices including Movement to Music and the Viewpoints. Movement to Music is not “dancing” but rather invites us to freely and with abandon respond to our impulses. The Viewpoints is a compositional vocabulary that gives us a structure that liberates us to express authentic movement as well as experience presence and connection. We will also share theatrical warmups, freewriting, and an overall emphasis on building our curiosity and awareness.

Cost: $100 | $75 for students*
*if cost is a barrier contact us and we’ll work it out!
