Operation Wolf Patrol

Meet Rod Coronado. Once jailed for ecoterrorism, he has since dedicated his life to Wolf Patrol - legal observation and documentation of hunters to reduce the use of problematic practices (bear baiting, unsupervised dogs) which exacerbate conflicts between wolves, humans and dogs. Set primarily in Northern Wisconsin, this film goes beyond Coronado as celebrity and asks us to consider the complex tensions of Indigenous and governmental land use, and wildlife management.

The Milwaukee Youth Show

This year's Milwaukee Youth Show provides a portal into the surreal space bridging the "before times" and now. Enlisting family members, delivery boxes, protest footage, and kitchen items (the semiotics of quarantine), these resilient and imaginative auteurs-in-the-making have captured a changed world in all its sadness, rage, and absurdity through a wide array of approaches.

Three Ways of Looking at Milwaukee

These three shorts look at Milwaukee from different angles and, taken together, present a prismatic perspective on our city. From the fascinating world of auctioneering to the voices of Black youth telling their stories to a symphonic portrait of the buildings and shadows of downtown Milwaukee - all three films are honest and authentic love letters to this city and its people.

When Claude Got Shot

When Claude Motley is shot during a visit to Milwaukee for his high school reunion, he realizes there's no escaping gun violence and the ripples of trauma it causes. When he discovers his assailant was shot only two nights later by another attempted victim and is now paralyzed, it complicates thinking of any such crime as singular. Tracing this case through the criminal justice system, this documentary asks how and if these cycles can be broken.
