A SPELL TO WARD OFF THE DARK­NESS

NOW Magazine - TIFF - - FILM FESTIVAL PREVIEW -

What a team-up: artist/film­mak­ers Ben Rivers and Ben Rus­sell and ac­tor/mu­si­cian Robert A. A. Lowe? From 90 Day Men? And Singer? And Lichens? And OM?! You bet­ter be­lieve it. Lowe plays (“with Bres­so­nian re­straint,” per the TIFF pro­gram note) a name­less wan­derer who hooks up with an Es­to­nian com­mune, vis­its north­ern Fin­land and fronts a Nor­we­gian black metal band. Mix­ing ex­per­i­men­tal cin­ema with ethnog­ra­phy, A Spell To Ward Off The Dark­ness sounds like one of sev­eral must-see ti­tles in the Wave­lengths pro­gram. Septem­ber 7, 10:30 pm, Jack­man Hall; Septem­ber 9, 4:30 pm, TIFF Bell Light­box 4; Septem­ber 15, 6:30 pm, Sco­tia­bank 8
