Thursday Night Movie Club: Pet Names
November 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pmFree
The Wisconsin Film Festival and the Madison Public Library are proud to present WFF Thursday Night Movie Club – a series of Wisconsin’s Own features from the 2019 Festival – at the Central Library in room 302.
Pet Names: When her chemotherapy patient mother urges her to take a vacation from playing nurse, grad school dropout Leigh invites her old high school boyfriend along on the camping trip. The two soon find that confronting old wounds during a weekend in the woods is anything but restful.
Director Carol Brandt will be in attendance. Born and raised in the Midwest, Carol grew up telling stories through plays, comic books, music, and her grandmother’s VHS camcorder. After earning her film BFA from UW-Milwaukee Peck School of the Arts in 2014, she has gone on to produce multiple short and feature films, all of which she directs, produces, and edits. Carol wrote and directed her first feature, Things Found on the Ground, at the age of 20. The film had its world premiere at the New Orleans Film Festival in 2013.
Her award-winning fourth feature, Pet Names, premiered at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival and has screened at festivals across the globe.
This event was funded through a grant from Madison Public Library Foundation.
