Friday September 21 – Thursday September 27

Featured Film:

Madeline’s Madeline at the Grand Illusion and the Meridian

There’s film noir at the Central Cinema (The Maltese Falcon) and SAM (White Heat kicking of their fall noir series), and the Local Sightings Festival at the Northwest Film Forum (featuring our own Ryan Swen’s look at Scarecrow Video Pictures at an Excavation as well as the excellent La cartographe by former SSS contributor Nathan Douglas), but the most exciting new release of the week on Seattle Screens is doubtless Madeline’s Madeline, the third feature by experimental filmmaker Josephine Decker (and the first to play here in Seattle? I don’t recall Butter on the Latch or Thou Wast Mild & Lovely playing here). The official synopsis: “Madeline (newcomer Helena Howard) has become an integral part of a prestigious physical theater troupe. When the workshop’s ambitious director (Molly Parker) pushes the teenager to weave her rich interior world and troubled history with her mother (Miranda July) into their collective art, the lines between performance and reality begin to blur. The resulting battle between imagination and appropriation rips out of the rehearsal space and through all three women’s lives.”
