SPRINGfilm: Better Than… Series! Better than the year 2020 deserved.

Come and relive the old days of Oregon’s Frontier with “First Cow” at SpringFILM. Join the Springfield Public Library at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 31st, for one of 2020s hidden A24 gems. Two travelers, on the run from a band of vengeful hunters in the 1820s Northwest, dream of striking it rich—but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier comes to rely on the secret use of a wealthy businessman’s prized dairy cow. With their scheme landing somewhere between honest ingenuity and pure grift, renowned filmmaker Kelly Reichardt finds a graceful and deeply moving origin story of America in their unlikely friendship and fragile life at the margins.

Starring John Magaro, Toby Jones, Alia Shawkat and Orion Lee, directed by Kelly Reichardt; 122mins; (2020).

SPRINGfilm continues at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 21, 2023, with a free showing of the Oscar nominated film “Judas and the Black Messiah”.

SPRINGfilm is made possible by a partnership between the Springfield Public Library, the Springfield Public Library Foundation, Willamalane Parks and Recreation District and the Wildish Community Theater and is generously sponsored by Plank Town Brewing Company.
