Strange Powers at SIFF Starts This Weekend

The 40 Ways to Celebrate Bumbershoot’s 40th Festival keep rolling on. Next up, we’re bringing you a film that’s been in the making for a decade. We’re incredibly pleased to sponsor two screenings of Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields (Bumbershoot alumnus, class of 2000) on June 6th and June 7th as part of SIFF.

Catch a glimpse into the life of one of America’s most unique songwriters, and get your chance to see beyond the albums as you’re treated to an in-depth look at this legendary indie band. Directors Kerthy Fix and Gail O’Hara are scheduled to attend both screenings, and Stephin Merritt himself is scheduled to attend the June 7th screening.

First Screening:
Date: Sunday, June 6
Time: 9:30 PM

Second Screening:
Date: Monday, June 7
Time: 4 PM (followed by a Q & A with Stephin Merritt)

Tickets: Available at SIFF
