SIFF correction and schedule update

Information given to the College about the SIFF film The Tenth Man, which is being shown on opening night, Fri., May 27 at 7 p.m., contained incorrect information. An initial synopsis of The Tenth Man stated that R&B singer Usher was to play the father of the lead character. The actor in that role is in fact named Usher Barilka, and has no affiliation with the R&B singer. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

In addition, the film The Patriarch, which was scheduled to show on Sat., May 28 at 6 p.m. has been replaced with the film The Architect. Starring Parker Posey and Eric McCormack, The Architect is a “bizarrely comic tale of love, obsession, and deceit.”
