    Akron local Jim Jarmusch constructed Porto, a 2016 film by former film censor Gabe Klinger.

    Set in Portugal, a play centers on Jake (the late Anton Yelchin), an American drifter who falls for Mati (Lucie Lucas), a French archaeology student.

    A intimately assured tyro in her 30s with a story of deceptive mental illness, Mati rocks Jake’s universe during a solitary night they spend together, something over that Jake obsesses via a film even after Mati moves on.

    Though many critics have complained about a script’s shallowness, they’ve also praised Yeltsin’s performance.

    The film creates the Cleveland entrance tomorrow night during 9:15 during the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, where it screens again during 8:30 on Saturday night. Tickets are $10, or $7 for Cinematheque members and students.
