OPENING NIGHT GALA Much Ado About Nothing

Shakespeare’s classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon’s film, Much Ado About Nothing. Shot in just 12 days and cast with a bunch of Whedon’s famous friends, they use the original text to tell the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick, offering a dark, sexy, and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love. (d: Joss Whedon c: Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Clark Gregg, Nathan Fillion, Sean Maher, Reed Diamond, Fran Kranz, USA 2012, 109 min) Start the SIFF-curious Festival off right by attending the Opening Night Gala at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall.

CENTERPIECE GALA

CLOSING GALA

Twenty Feet from Stardom follows several diverse and gifted backup singers living in the shadows of superstardom. Although these singers are usually relegated to the margins, and few, if any, become household names, their work has defined countless songs that remain in our hearts and collective consciousness.

Ripped from the headlines, five celebrity-obsessed teenagers barrel through the glitz and glamor of Los Angeles, illegally pilfering the goods of the rich and famous, in Sofia Coppola’s bitingly funny satire with a razor-sharp edge. (d: Sofia Coppola c: Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julien, USA 2013, 90 min)

(d: Morgan Neville w: Lou Adler, Stevvi Alexander, Patti Austin, USA 2013, 90 min)

Twenty Feet from Stardom

Need an energy boost halfway through the Festival? So do we! So we’re throwing a party on Capitol Hill on June 1. Immediately after the screening of Twenty Feet from Stardom, the crowd will make its way over to DAR Hall for music, and dancing, hors d’oeurvres, desserts, and cocktails.

Peter Greenaway, the iconoclastic genius behind such astonishing films as The Draughtsman’s Contract, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, The Pillow Book, and Goltzius and the Pelican Company, provides a premise and a challenge in his upcoming forum: is the contemporary cinema’s dependence on text leading to the death of cinema? Citing examples from both sides of the equation, Greenaway presents a fascinating treatise on the ways in which our reliance on text in film is creating a populace of “visual illiterates.” Join us for what promises to be a fascinating and hugely entertaining afternoon with one of the medium’s leading provocateurs. Illustrated with numerous clips and striking visual imagery, Peter Greenaway’s lecture promises to be enlightening and exciting adventure. The talk will follow a screening of Goltzius and the Pelican Company.

Peter Greenaway’s stunningly visual, sexually provocative 16th-century tale is based on the life of the notorious Dutch engraver who tempts the Margrave of Alsace with a business proposition, offering to stage erotic dramatizations of the old testament.

The intersections of film and music illuminate each medium in their own way, whether through a shared sense of dramatic storytelling or via the less predictable pathways of history, home, and reinterpretation. This year’s live music events were curated by longtime local journalist and KEXP DJ Hannah Levin.

THURSDAY, MAY 30 A Tribute to the Music of Muscle Shoals with Patterson and David Hood Triple Door: Doors 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m. (all-ages) Patterson Hood grew up in North Alabama. Muscle Shoals Sound was the studio co-founded by his father David Hood, who also worked in the legendary Alabama recording facility as a producer and session player. Patterson’s formative experiences watching the works-inprogress of iconic artists such as Bob Seger, Paul Simon, Traffic, and Wilson Pickett helped shape his love of rock-n-roll and laid the groundwork for his later musical career as both a solo artist and frontman for Drive-By Truckers. At this rare and truly unique event, father and son will share the stage, performing songs, trading stories, and reflecting on the magical properties of that space. The documentary Muscle Shoals screens at SIFF on Wed. May 29, 7:00 p.m., SIFF Cinema Uptown, Thurs. May 30, 4:30 p.m., The Egyptian Theatre.

FRIDAY, JUNE 7 The Maldives and The Wind

FACE THE MUSIC FILMS Music is an outburst of the soul, and some of this year’s musical films endeavor to capture that outburst in all of its emotional, raw, unbridled glory. Check out this year’s FACE THE MUSIC films to find a thrilling musical experience in a theater near you.

Two Shows at the Triple Door: 7:00 p.m.(all-ages) and 9:30 p.m. (21+) Seattle-based band The Maldives created an unforgettable evening in 2011 when they composed a live score to accompany the psychedelic western Riders of the Purple Sage. This year, they tackle the tumultuous romantic drama that informs the storyline of The Wind, a recently resurrected 1928 classic starring silent screen siren Lillian Gish.

LOVE

MAKE ME LAUGH!

FILMS THAT MAKE YOU CHUCKLE AND TICKLE YOUR FUNNY BONE. Carl Spence SIFF Artistic Director

As Lenny Bruce once said, “The only honest art form is laughter.” While the rest of SIFF’s programming proves this notion to be demonstrably false, there is no denying the cathartic power of comedy, and the delight we experience as our sides split can come from any number of places. It can be found amidst a dysfunctional family vacationing at their summer home (The Way, Way Back) or amongst the staff of microbrewery (Drinking Buddies), as far away as South Africa (Spud 2: The Madness Continues) or Japan (Key of Life). Discover hilarity in a world of monsters (Monsters University), in the past (Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last!), and even within a five hundred-year-old text (Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing). Regardless of your sense of humor, MAKE ME LAUGH will have you doubling over with glee.

THRILL ME!

THRILL ME!

SUSPENSE, THRILLS, AND ACTION. FILMS WITH A FASTER PACE THAT MIGHT ALSO SURPRISE YOU WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT! Brad Wilke, SIFF Prog ram me r

We’ve coined a phrase to describe the vast emptiness of the humdrum slate of cookie-cutter Hollywood films: “the monotony of the multiplex.” This chronic condition only has one known cure: SIFF’s THRILL ME mood! We’ve got mysteries, crime thrillers, midnight specials, whodunnits, ghost stories, demonic possessions, character studies, and more. We’re serving them up hot and fresh, with something to appeal to each member of our vast and diverse audience. From the latest U.S. independent narratives (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Worm), to international favorites (Tai Chi Hero, Byzantium), documentaries (The Crash Reel, Storm Surfers 3D), and more, you’ll find something to get your adrenaline pumping.

PROVOKE ME! SIFF Programmer jaja, A a yn ar M

MESMERIZING DRAMAS AND DOCUMENTARIES THAT EXPLORE THOUGHT-PROVOKING QUESTIONS, REALITIES, AND TOPICS. The word “provoke” comes from Latin, prōvacāre, to challenge. In The Act of Killing, leaders of an Indonesian death squad reenact exploits of genocide for the camera. In The Name Of, a Polish film about a gay priest, leaves more questions than answers. The Slovakian film My Dog Killer pits countryside fascists against gypsies, and the Chilean Dog Flesh is a brooding study of an unpredictable man. Spring never arrives in The Fifth Season and Mads Mikkelsen is a man wrongly accused in The Hunt. Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise trilogy follows three women at turning points with humor and social commentary. Yes, I said PROVOKE ME! Make me think!

After his wife’s death in a car accident, Roberto moves to Mexico City with his teenage daughter Alejandra. While father and daughter are inherently close, their repressed grief and lack of communication threatens to unhinge them when she becomes the victim of brutal bullying at school. (d: Michel Franco

A stunning coming-of-age story following sixteen-year-old Nader, a troubled immigrant teenager who desperately wants to fit into Italian youth culture despite his family’s insistence that he respect his Egyptian and Muslim roots. Winner Special Jury Prize, Rome Film Festival. (d: Claudio Giovannesi

In this frequently hilarious, engaging, and brutally honest portrait of a 35-year-old man with a definite case of arrested development, Henryk has a new apartment, a challenging job, and a beautiful pregnant wife, which is where the trouble starts.

This chilling contemporary fable draws on traditional peasant folklore to chronicle what happens when Mother Nature turns her back on a small Ardennes village and refuses to let winter give way to spring. (d: Peter Brosens,

A stark, surreal, strange, and entirely riveting tale of a marginalized teenage boy. Young Kazakh director Emir Baigazin’s accomplished debut creates a poetic and mature study of school bullying and the strength of the survival instinct in a small town in rural Kazakstan.

With a blend of realism, social commentary, and warped humor, Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise trilogy tells the stories of three women each at a turning point.

So her mother and aunt can leave on summer excursions, 13-year-old Melanie is shipped off to weight loss camp.

SHOW ME THE WORLD

PREPARE TO BE TAKEN TO ANOTHER PLACE—FROM EXOTIC, FAR-OFF LANDS TO VIBRANT EXPERIENCES OUTSIDE OF EVERYDAY LIFE. Barda, SIFF Progra tine mm Jus er

Ready to get out of town? Your ticket to SIFF buys you the cheapest trip you’ll ever take. Visit the lush jungles and floating cities of the Cambodian countryside or the bustling metropolis of modern Phnom Penh (A River Changes Course). Keep watch through the polar night at the edge of the Arctic Sea (Mercy), then see the sun rise over the water in Mongolia (The Horde). Better yet, wander the streets of Lisbon with a young blind man who can envision the cityscape only in his mind (Imagine). Leave the hustle of Johannesburg behind for the remote mountains of Lesotho (The Forgotten Kingdom). Over 25 days and 400 films, you can cover an awful lot of ground.

EXPLORE THE OUTER LIMITS WITH FILMS THAT GO BEYOND THE EDGE.

Seattleites see more films per capita than the residents of any other American city, and a growing number of these selections have their roots in the fertile Pacific Northwest film community. Each year, SIFF honors the many ways in which the Puget Sound region contributes to the world of cinema, whether it acts as an evocative location for outside filmmakers or as inspiration for local filmmakers ready to strut their stuff.

Doody, SIFF Programm Dan er

Ever felt like your heart was about to burst from your chest? TO THE EXTREME provides high-octane, visceral experiences within the “safe” confines of the cinema. Master cinema provocateur Peter Greenaway returns with Goltzius and the Pelican Company—an erotic tale of a 16th century Dutch engraver. V/H/S/2 revisits the days of video nasties, while a cold-blooded loan shark reconsiders brutality in Pieta. A substitute teacher escapes by fantasizing bizarre parallel realities in Yellow. Fans of the walking dead will enjoy Cockneys vs. Zombies, in which the zombie-pocalypse begins, while Dead Meat Walking examines the zombie phenomenon in global pop-culture. With TO THE EXTREME, there’s something for anybody who likes their cinema dangerous and wild.
