Portland Parks & Recreation presents
Movies in the Park: Gamera vs Guiron - performed by Filmusik
with pre-movie entertainment: Megafauna.
SE 31st Ave & Market St
Free to the Public
On a distant alien planet, 2 brain eating space babes protect their domain from intruders with the fearsome Guiron with a knife for a head and the ability to shook shuriken out of his nostrils. When two boys from the Earth end up in the clutches of the evil women, Gamera, jet powered mega-turtle, swoops in to do battle in a showdown of epic proportions!
Filmusik: Gamera vs. Guiron is a live film performance not to miss, A soundscape of local portland talent that is larger than big, bigger than huge, and may even be ginormous!
In the park, teams of voice actors, sound effects artists and musicians will go to work in a stunning performance of film, music, noise and exceptionally large monsters. Gamera vs. Guiron (1969) is an epic Japanese monster film starring 3 of the biggest baddest fire-breathing condo-crushing “kaiju” of the day.
Veteran sound effects artists Pat Janowski (livewire!) and David Ian (unchained productions) rip, shake and smash their way through the film with their onstage arsenal of noise. The Willamette Radio Workshop dubs the film live into English (yes even the monsters) and our orchestra performs an originally composed soundtrack.
