Movie “Charlatan” by Agnieszka Holland at SIFF

The Seattle International Film Festival streaming presents the 2020 film Charlatan directed by Agnieszka Holland and starring Ivan Trojan.

This fascinating 2020 movie tells a true story of Jan Mikolášek, a very well-known traditional healer in post WWII Czechoslovakia, who with his uncanny diagnostic skills and herbal mixtures to treat people draws crowds but attracts the attention of the Communist regime and gets arrested and put on trial. The film has won five 2021 Czech Lion Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Leading Actor.
