SIFF Film Center Seattle Center
July 7-9 2017
This touring film festival is billed as "the largest Czech cultural event in the United States," traveling around American cities while showing off the variety and talent in Czech cinema. When it stops in Seattle, audiences will have the chance to see seven feature films, from an animated take on The Little Mermaid to a horror film about the "Noonday Witch." Joule Zelman writes that The Noonday Witch "cadges clichés from horror filmmaking without fully investing in the genre" and offers "rural dysfunction, bickering couples, avuncular lechery, and unwanted intrusions."
