Portland is home to a strong Bosnian community, and many are former refugees who made a home here after the Balkan War in the 1990s. Pour the Water as I Leave is an animated, narrative/documentary hybrid feature film by Portland-based, Bosnian-born filmmaker Daniela Repas. It tells a story about what happened to Bosnians 25 years ago and how it relates to refugees worldwide today.
The art exhibition Pour the Water as I Leave: Installation, Vol I: Film in Progress brings the experience the filmmaking process and invites viewers to walk inside this film-in-progress. The exhibition features behind-the-scenes photography by Simone Fischer, hand-drawn animation cels, and animated excerpts from the film by Daniela Repas, the Bosnian-born, and Portland-based director, animator & creator of the film Pour the Water as I Leave.
The exhibition was produced by Shrine13 and Six Billion Suns Productions, hosted by Sator Projects, and is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
