Day 12 of the Seattle International Film Festival features an understated tale of a government worker bee, a clan of undead beavers attacking coeds and a squirrel solving the deep existential problems of his fellow forest dwellers.
"Still Life" -- A mild-mannered government worker is let go from his government office - but not before being tasked with finding the next of kin to a man who may have died alone.
Tickets are on stand-by for this film's final SIFF screening at 6 p.m. PT at Pacific Place.
Director Jordan Rubin is scheduled to attend this screening.
This film's final SIFF screening begins at 8:30 p.m. PT at the SIFF Uptown.
