This is a plug for a movie called “Going on 13.” My cousin, Corey Ohama, is the film editor, and she worked on this project for a looong time. Needless to say I’ve been hearing about it, and looking forward to seeing it.
It first showed at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York (at least, I’m assuming), and Time Out Magazine gave it four stars and said, “A rare and frequently inspiring close-up on girls who are at an age that is usually quite impenetrable to adults” (Here’s the review.)
And now it’s coming right to Portland!
It’s playing at the Portland Women’s Film Festival (POW Fest), on Sunday, May 18, from 4:00 – 5:30 pm at the Hollywood Theater, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland OR.
