The Portland Museum of Art’s PMA Films at Home has added several films to its roster. Partnering with exhibitors and distributors, they are renting first-run content to the public; a portion of proceeds benefits the museum. Some selections are paired with bonus content such as live question-and-answer sessions or filmmaker interviews. Newly available are:

“Days of the Whale,” directed by Catalina Arroyave Restrepo. Two young graffiti artists in Medellín, Colombia, defy a criminal gang when they decide to paint over a threat, written on a wall, with a mural of a whale.

“House of Hummingbird,” directed by Bora Kim. In Seoul in 1994, a lonely 14-year-old girl, deprived of attention from her family, moves through life like a hummingbird searching for a taste of sweetness wherever she may find it. When a new teacher arrives, she becomes the first adult the girl feels really understands her.

“Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets,” directed by Bill and Turner Ross. As a Las Vegas dive bar prepares to close its doors forever, its longtime bartenders and patrons come together for one last night of camaraderie, commemoration and consolation as they contemplate their place in a fracturing and downcast late-2016 America.
