Seasonal Special Happenings

On the Dark Side

When: Thu., Jan. 29 2015

Directed and written by Ben Rivers and Ben Russell, A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness follows an unnamed character as he goes through three stages of his life. First, he’s living at a commune in Estonia. Then, he’s alone in the Finnish wilderness. And finally, he’s the singer in a black metal band. Starring musician Robert AA Lowe (best known as the performance artist LICHENS), the film successfully blurs the lines between fact and fiction. It makes its Cleveland premiere tonight at 8:30 and tomorrow night at 8:05 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
