The 2018 Milwaukee Film Festival will run from October 18th to November 1st. This year is especially remarkable, as the festival will be celebrating it’s 10th annual run.
The Women in Film Showcase, presented by Live Wire Productions, lets one explore all the feature-length films made by women directors at this year’s festival. This list includes the film, Warrior Women, directed by Christina D. King & Elizabeth A. Castle, produced by Anna Marie Pitman. The documentary follows famed Lakota activist Madonna Thunder Hawk over her five decades of indigenous activism. From the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM) in the late ‘60s to the pipeline protests at Standing Rock, with a run time of 64 minutes, it packs a lot in. The film is a portrait of an aging rebel filled with observations on legacy and memory. Warrior Women is a tribute to female activism. The content of the film along with with a female directing team delivers a one-two punch of women empowerment.

SUNDAY, OCT 21 - 7:15 PM - Oriental Theatre Main
MONDAY, OCT 22 - 8:30 PM - Jan Seer Studio Cinema
WEDNESDAY, OCT 24 - 1 PM - Oriental Theatre East
