North Oregon Coast Delves Into Local History, Hosts Film Festival
(Cannon Beach, Oregon) – It's two kinds of history on the north Oregon coast this month: one is cinematic and celebrates the art form with a film festival, and the other delves into America’s obsession with "Manifest Destiny" nearly two hundred years ago.
The Second Annual Cannon Beach Film Festival will celebrate "Paul Newman through the Decades" on June 5 - 7. All films will be shown at the Coaster Theatre at 108 N Hemlock in downtown Cannon Beach, starting with a kick-off no-host wine reception Friday evening, June 5, open to the public.
Author and Oregon Coast Today columnist Matt Love has agreed to speak at the second annual Cannon Beach Film Festival ("Paul Newman through the Decades") talking about "Sometimes a Great Party"- Adventures during filming of Sometimes a Great Notion on the Oregon Coast. The revised information for the festival has now been released, reflecting changes to the Sunday schedule.
Who can get enough Paul Newman? This year’s film festival will chronicle the work of Newman from his early films in the 1950s to his later years. Films chosen for the festival include lesser-known art films like Rachel, Rachel, and well-known ones like The Color of Money. It includes the classic Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and a beguiling view of Newman in What a Way to Go. The Film Festival schedule will run as follows:
Friday, June 5
Saturday, June 6
Sunday, June 7
All events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum at 503-436-9301, or visit www.cbhistory.org .
Robert Miller, a Professor at Lewis & Clark Law School, will speak on the “The Doctrine of Discovery and Manifest Destiny” at the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum (CBHCM) on Saturday, June 20 at 9:30 a.m. The program, part of the CBHCM semi-annual membership meeting, will be free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Professor Miller worked with the Stoel Rives law firm from 1992 to 1995 and practiced Indian law with Hobbs, Straus, Dean & Walker in 1995 to 1999. Immediately upon graduating, Professor Miller clerked for Judge Diarmuid O'Scannlain, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Miller is the Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals of the Grand Ronde Tribe and sits as a judge for other tribes. His published articles include pieces on civil procedure and a wide array of federal Indian law issues.
Miller speaks regularly on Indian law issues and represented his tribe in the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial. His book Native America, Discovered and Conquered: Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, and Manifest Destiny grew out of that work. He is an enrolled citizen of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma.
