The Last Season

Sunday, Nov 7, 2021 at 4:00 PM

With Sara Dosa in person

Dir. Sara Dosa. 2014. 78 mins. Every fall, devotees descend upon Central Oregon to hunt the elusive and rare matsutake mushroom, prized in Japanese culture and cuisine. In this unlikely place, two former soldiers intersect. Roger is a 75-year-old sniper with the U.S. Special Forces in Vietnam, while Kouy is a 46-year-old platoon leader who battled Cambodia’s brutal Khmer Rouge. The two discover more than just mushrooms in the woods: they find a new livelihood as well as a means to slowly heal the wounds of war. Told over the course of one matsutake mushroom season, The Last Season is an unexpected story of family, and a journey into the memory of war and survival.
