About the film:  A skilled cook has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant also seeking his fortune. Soon the two collaborate on a successful business.   The film is based on the novel The Half Life by Jonathan Raymond, and takes place in the Pacific Northwest in the early nineteenth century. 

The film is directed by Kelly Reichardt (Wendy & Lucy, Old Joy, Meek's Cutoff) and stars John Magaro, Orion Lee and Toby Jones.

The film is rated PG-13 for brief strong language.


Footcandle Film Society was founded in 2008 and has provided the citizens of Catawba County with an opportunity to view and discuss films that have traditionally not been available or shown in theaters in the area. The film society has shown at least one film per month since its inception, with the films ranging from documentaries, foreign narratives, and award-nominated movies of all genres.  The screenings all include moderated discussions of the films.

In addition to the monthly film screenings, the film society also brings the annual Footcandle Film Festival and Children's International Film Festival events to Western North Carolina.
