The Chicago International Film Festival Celebrates DAY FOUR of that Toddlin’ Town’s movie extravaganza. Film recommendations for today include the documentary FIRE WILL COME (International Competition) and the film associated with the BLACK PERSPECTIVE TRIBUTE, ‘CLEMENCY.’ Click here for a complete rundown of DAY FOUR screenings and events.

“Knives and Skin” is a Twin Peaks-ian teen noir, telling the story of the disappearance of a high school student, which points toward dark forces at work in a sleepy Illinois town. Although friends, neighbors, and family search for Carolyn Harper, the case remains unsolved. Unmoored and adrift, the rural community – from the mother of the missing girl to her fellow choir members – tries to soldier on. Surreal, sly, and shocking, Jennifer Reeder’s coming-of-age tale has a intuitive feminist heart.
