The Whatcom Museum is excited to co-present Art & Krimes, directed by Alysa Nahmias for the Pickford Film Center’s Doctober Film Festival. Locked-up for six years in a federal prison, Jesse Krimes secretly creates monumental works of art—including an astonishing 40-foot mural made with prison bed sheets, hair gel, and newspaper. He smuggles out each panel piece-by-piece with the help of fellow artists, only seeing the mural in totality upon coming home. As Jesse’s work captures the art world’s attention, he adjusts to life outside, getting to know his young son, and living with the constant threat, due to his conditional release, that any misstep will trigger a life sentence.

Each October the Pickford showcases Doctober—a month-long documentary film festival dedicated to one of Bellingham’s proven favorite genres, the documentary. Doctober is the largest documentary festival in the Northwest, screening more than 50 films in one month. For this festival, the Pickford partners with local groups and organizations to bring important issues to the screen. Many presentations feature special guests, filmmakers, pre-screening receptions, and guided group discussions. This year, the festival runs September 30th through November 3rd.
