Cinebuds' Milwaukee Film Festival Wednesday pick: 'Coven'

Today they're talking about the movie that every true Milwaukeean needs to see: " Coven." Originally made in 1997, it's a film about a cult that was the subject of the classic documentary "American Movie." This is your chance to finally see the completed movie! It's screening Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 10:45 p.m. at the Oriental Theatre, and of course director Mark Borchardt will be on site to discuss it.


From the Milwaukee Film Festival website:

"No good deed goes unpunished for Milwaukee native Mark Borchardt, who wrote, directed, and starred as Mike, a writer with severe drug and alcohol problems. Mike finally seeks help in the form of a support group, but soon realizes he’s unwittingly joined a demonic cult. Imagine  Midsommar, but with a distinctly Wisconsin setting and black-and-white cinematography that evokes the creepier side of our natural landscapes. This local cult classic will be projected in a 35mm print from the director’s own collection, followed by an extended Q&A."
