'The Devil's Miner'
(FILM) The Seattle International Film Festival kicks off today, but the opening-night feature, The Illusionist
, is sloshy and bland. Don't bother. Head over to the Grand Illusion instead
for the final night of The Devil's Miner
, a mesmerizing documentary about child workers in the silver mines of Bolivia
who, in addition to worshipping God in their town's Catholic church, also make sacrifices to Tio, a devil who holds sway over the Earth's hostile core
. (Grand Illusion, 1403 NE 50th St, 523-3935. 7 and 9 pm, $5-$7.50.)
