MFAvorites September Screening “Xandu”
September 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
In collaboration with No Studios, the Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance (MFA) hosts a monthly MFAvorites series where we screen the films that inspired us to become filmmakers and follow it with a conversation around its effect on our work.
For September, Susan Kerns will talk about “Xanadu” (1980), directed by Robert Greenwald, and its effect on her filmmaking style and sensibility.
“Struggling artist Sonny Malone (Michael Beck) is trapped in a dull job painting album covers. He is instantly attracted to Kira (Olivia Newton-John), an anonymous woman randomly photographed in the background of one of his assignments, but no one is able to identify her. Visiting the auditorium where the cover was shot, Sonny finds the mysterious beauty, an ageless Greek muse, who encourages him to team up with old-fashioned Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly) to build a roller-skating disco.”
