2017 Minneapolis film fest.  We showed a sneak peak of our new feature film about Albert Milgrom. At age 95 Milgrom has 4 movies in the works. “Work In Progress” follows Milgrom through cinema history: his first memories of silent Charlie Chaplin movies, a young man in WWII, the french New Wave, and 50 years of programming the U Film Society and festival.

We watch Milgrom as he edits 16mm reels he shot behind the Soviet Union iron curtain in 1959. The film teaser screening was by Philip Harder & Mike Dust. Mark Wojahn‘s quote- “This is pretty close to capturing the essence of man himself. Can’t wait to see the final cut.”

Prince asked me to write a story about post 9-11 muslim racism inspired by the lyrics. I spent that entire summer working with him on this clip. Perhaps my most rewarding filmmaking experience. He pushed me creatively and as always he pushed the boundaries. Starring Academy Award nominee Keisha Castle Hughs.
