Gathr Films is hosting a screening of Low & Clear on Thursday August 1 at 7:30pm at the Bijou Art Cinemas in Eugene, Oregon.
Here is a quick synopsis of Low & Clear:
During a winter flyfishing trip to Canada, two old friends, J.T. Van Zandt and Alex “Xenie” Hall, learn they’ve have grown apart in more ways than one. J.T., the thoughtful even-keeled son of a songwriting legend believes there’s more to fishing than catching fish. Short-tempered Xenie, a “firewood salesman,” sees it differently and fishes like it’s a race against the clock. Their different approaches to fishing and life emerge and clash on the snowy river banks and damp hotel rooms of British Columbia in this true story of a friendship stretched to the breaking point. An exploration of life in the disappearing wilderness of the West, Low & Clear unfolds with moments of humor and pathos, success and failure, as J.T. and Xenie find themselves on a fishing trip that could be their last.
Based on the trailer, I really think this film says something interesting about the different kinds of fishermen and relationships that develop, erode, and haunt us over time. Looks like it’s got potential to be something more than the average fly fishing movie.
