If you frequently read EverOut's roundups, you may have noticed that I'm a big fan of Church of Film, a supernatural cinema program that centers stories of the occult, folktales, anarchy, communism, queerness, and all things magical. CoF keeps the good times rolling this week with a program of enchanted Soviet animation—think Baba Yaga, trolls, giants (kindly and horrible), and other mythical creatures from otherworldly landscapes. The offerings are pulled from the catalog of "the Soviet Union's great animation studio, Soyuzmultfilm," and include The Scarlet Flower, The Magic Lake, The Walnut Switch, and other flicks. Show up to celebrate one of Portland's weirdest, most beloved cinema treasures, and get an eyeful of magic, too.
