Brian Lindstrom

Brian Lindstrom is an award-winning filmmaker working in both narrative and documentary modes. He is best known for Finding Normal, his cinema-verite documentary following three long-term addicts trying to rebuild their lives with the help of peer counselors. Lindstrom made the film for $5,000, shooting and editing himself. Finding Normal won awards at the Astoria International and Longbaugh Film Festivals, was selected for several others, enjoyed extended successful runs at local theaters as well as screenings in Los Angeles, New York, and Michigan, and was broadcast on Oregon Public Broadcasting. Perhaps more importantly, it is the only film ever to be shown to inmates in solitary confinement at Oregon State Penitentiary. Lindstrom’s experience includes making films with at-risk youth in Portland, rural Oregon, Idaho and the South Bronx. He was a staff producer/director for The Visionaries, a documentary series on PBS hosted by Sam Waterston, for which he was awarded a Telly. Lindstrom is currently directing Alien Boy: the Death and Life of James Chasse. The film examines the life of a forty two year old man diagnosed with schizophrenia who died in police custody in 2006.
