Free screening of ‘Love Child’ Wednesday at Uptown

In case you’re in need of something to do Wednesday night, this sounds intriguing: “Love Child,” a documentary about Internet addiction, will have a free screening at SIFF Cinema at the Uptown at 7 p.m. Director Valerie Veatch (a Seattle native) and executive producer John Legere (CEO of T-Mobile) will attend. The film focuses on a much-reported 2010 case, in which a South Korean couple was arrested after their baby starved to death while they played an online fantasy game — one which included taking care of a virtual child. “Love Child,” which previously screened at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, will debut on HBO July 28. Admission is free, but you’ll need to reserve a ticket.
