Bill Traylor: Chasing Ghosts

Born into slavery in 1853, Bill Traylor witnessed profound social and political change during his life - spanning slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow segregation, and the Great Migration. In his late 80s, despite living homeless, he poured this wealth of experience and emotion into more than 1,000 pieces of art and would eventually become one of the most celebrated American, self-taught artists. Balancing interviews with Traylor's family, visual art, and music, this film is a must-see for any art lover. WISCONSIN ONLY

Call Me Human

In Joséphine Bacon’s language, Innu means “human,” and there is no word for “poet.” But Bacon has traversed and redefined these paradoxical identifiers exquisitely throughout her life, which we get to follow intimately in Kim O’Bomsawin’s CALL ME HUMAN. In this enchanting portrait of the legendary septuagenarian author, songwriter, and documentary filmmaker, Bacon tours the tremendous landscapes that have shaped her people’s language, culture, and traditions, whose preservation has been her life’s work.

Holy Frit

A Kansas megachurch commissions the world's largest stained-glass window. An L.A. based artist wows them with his complex design, elevating the small family-owned stained-glass studio he works for. The only problem is he has no idea how to actually complete the work. Enter world-famous, Italian glass maestro Narcissus Quagliata. Juggling the church's timeline, a tight budget, and loud personalities, these artists have the difficult challenge of bringing the impossible to light.

M.C. Escher: Journey To Infinity

Featuring the Dutch graphic artist's own words (narrated by Stephen Fry), this illuminating documentary explores his well-known works through a less-well-known lens. Using animation to help us see these pieces again in a new way, audiences are asked to consider anew the celebrity of Escher, layered here with the philosophical power and profundity of his scientific thinking and biographical details that inform his worldview.
