Justin Zimmerman, a Rose City Park neighborhood resident and filmmaker who has won international television awards for documentaries, has two showings on his calendar.
He has created a short Stephen King adaptation, “The Man Who Loved Flowers,” that has gained the best-selling author’s approval, Zimmerman said. He shot it entirely in Estacada last fall and he will screen the film at 7 p.m. March 14 at the Estacada Library. The film genre is, of course, horror with its Stephen King influence. Zimmerman wrote and directed the film with a cast and crew largely from Portland. Information about it is on Facebook.
Zimmerman expects to screen a documentary, “Sara’s Columbine,” at 7 p.m. April 19 in the Council Chambers of Templeton Campus Center at Lewis & Clark College, 0615 S.W. Palatine Hill Road. For the past decade, Zimmerman said, he’s been working with Sara, a survivor of the 1999 Columbine school shooting in Colorado. He said the film focuses on her “powerful and inspirational personal journey. Her story is about healing.” More information is available at the college’s website.
