Synopsis

Doug returns to Portland to live with Gail, his sister, not under the best ofconditions: he has just left his Forensic studies in Chicago and is slumped into a kind of lethargy, only dedicated to sleeping and reading Sherlock Holmes novels. He ends up taking up a night job in an ice factory where he becomes a friend of Carlos, an occasional DJ, to whom he imbibes his interest in Arthur Conan Doyle’s mysteries. Rachel, his ex-girlfriend, returns to the city one day, meets Carlos, and starts dating him. At one point Carlos calls Doug, alarmed: Rachel has not shown up for a date, and has completely disappeared. Doug suddenly finds himself engulfed in an investigation that gives him the opportunity to experience his detective fantasies, and in which he discovers, with the help of his sister, that there is a lot more than is visible to the naked eye behind Rachel’s disappearance. Partly a study of the brother and sister relationship, partly a thriller, Cold Weather tightens the screws on the pseudo-genre known as mumblecore.

He also directed the short films Hoopla (2004) andLet's Get Down to Brass Tacks (2008), and the documentaryAll the Stage Is a World, which he wrote together withChad Hartigan, Brendan McFadd and Marc Ripper.
