Article Pixel

Glimmerglass Film Days begins this Thursday, November 5.

Glimmerglass Film Days begins this Thursday, November 5 with the Opening Film The Seer and the Unseen (Sara Dosa, 2019, Iceland, 82 min).

The film's heroine is Ragga Jónsdóttir, a seer who can communicate directly with the parallel realm of elves. When development threatens land that elves hold sacred, Ragga takes action. A microcosm for human relationships to nature, economy and the enchanting power of belief, the film explores the invisible forces - be they elves or capitalism - that shape our visible worlds and transform our natural landscapes.

Filmmaker Magazine calls the film, a "charming trek to the wild outdoors of Iceland" that delivers "a winning portrait of empathy."

The film is included with the Glimmerglass Pass. Tickets to The Seer and the Unseen are $4. The film is available to watch on the Glimmerglass Film Days online platform from 6 pm on Nov. 5 through 6 pm on Nov. 7. Film Days continues through November 11 with 27 screenings of documentary features, narrative features and shorts.Film Days is a program of Otsego 2000, an environmental and preservation advocacy nonprofit based in Cooperstown, NY.

Films will be able to be viewed for 48 hours on the Glimmerglass Film Days online platform. New films are added each day at 10 am unless otherwise noted. Film summaries and trailers available at
