  • The Whitsell Auditorium at the Portland Art Museum 1219 Southwest Park Avenue Portland, OR, 97205 United States (map)

Thirty years ago, as much of the world was being ravaged by horrific diseases like HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, three remarkable young people, barely out of their teens—Jim Yong Kim, Paul Farmer, Ophelia Dahl—came together in a squatter settlement in Haiti. Determined to provide the same world-class level of medical care they would expect for their own families, they faced obstacles so enormous they weren’t even considered surmountable by the rest of the world. Reaching far beyond the issue of health care, BENDING THE ARC shows how moral imagination, strategy, and sheer will together can change the trajectory of the world, bending the arc of the moral universe closer to justice.

We are delighted to welcome Cori Stern (prod, BENDING THE ARC) to the post-film Q&A and reception.

To attend this screening, please purchase an advance ticket to reserve your spot. All tickets guarantee entry to screenings until 7 pm, when screenings begin. Late entry will be at the discretion of the venue.

General admission is $10 and includes a pre-screening reception and general seating in the beautiful Whitsell Auditorium. We are also excited to offer a limited number of patron tickets, which include prime reserved seating and an invitation to meet filmmakers and special guests and enjoy a complimentary drink and hors d’oeuvres at the post-film reception. Patron tickets are $40
