Madison's monthly short film series known as Wis-Kino settled into its new digs this summer along Willy Street.
The June screening, featuring a theme of "photography" beat the heat by remaining indoors at Escape Java Joint, but the July edition joined the growing ranks of outdoor events held at the future home of Central Park on the near east side.
This screening, coinciding with La Fete de Marquette and held next to R.P.'s Pasta factory by the bike path, bore a "French" theme, complete with films imported from a recent Kino Kabaret in Paris.
A list and brief descriptions from the June 17 screening follows, many of which are available online for viewing:
- People I Love by Shelby Falk
This film, Falk explains, is "based on an idea I had taking dynamic portraits of dear ones with an underrated format... the Polaroid." Consisting of three primary segments over the course of three minutes that features people shot both on film and on instant film, this "long, uncomfortable coverage forces you to watch," he concludes.
