We’re a Milwaukee Film Festival Community Partner!

September 30, 2018

It’s the 10th anniversary of the Milwaukee Film Festival! We’re excited to be a Community Partner for “My Name is Myeisha,” part of the Teen Screen program — a series of films selected by and for teens. The film screens October 23, 27, and 28 — click here to get your tickets

About the film: Taking the 1998 police shooting of teenager Myeisha Taylor as its starting point, My Name is Myeisha weaves a hypnotic musical, as Myeisha experiences both her past and potential futures in a dreamlike state in her dying moments. This is cinema as ferocious elegy, blending hip-hop, spoken word poetry, and dance, taking the senseless tragedy of a life cut needlessly short and turning it into a dazzling and unforgettable musical journey, a much-needed reminder that Black lives always have, and always will, matter.
