THE EXPERIENCE

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Join us for a second screening of PROBLEMISTA, and learn more about the fantastical world of toy design with a brief crash course from local designer Flavia Devetag.

ON SCREEN: Problemista

2024. Directed by Julio Torres. Runtime: 104 minutes. Rated R. Starring: Tilda Swinton, Julio Torres, RZA, Greta Lee, Catalina Saavedra, James Scully, Larry Owens, Laith Nakli, Kelly McCormack, Spike Einbinder, Greta Titelman, River L. Ramirez, and narrated by Isabella Rossellini

Alejandro is an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador, struggling to bring his unusual ideas to life in New York City. As time on his work visa runs out, a job assisting an erratic art-world outcast becomes his only hope to stay in the country and realize his dream. From writer/director Julio Torres comes a surreal adventure through the equally treacherous worlds of New York City and the U.S. Immigration system.

ON STAGE: Flavia Devetag

Flavia Devetag is an Italian-American toy designer and eclectic creative based in Portland.

After completing her Industrial Design studies in her hometown of Brescia, Italy, Flavia’s career path took a series of turns that led her through hospitality and graphic design before going back to her roots in 2017, when Toy Design “found her.”

Flavia is passionate about designing toys that promote child development through play while prioritizing sustainability as a central element of her work, whenever possible.

She dreams of expanding her design adventures to cater to furry companions, especially to pamper her one and only “child,” Nugget!
