'The Pez Outlaw' kicks off the Milwaukee Film Festival Thursday

"The Pez Outlaw"

Thursday, April 21st, 6:30PM at the Oriental Theater

Opening Night is always the most fun night of the festival no matter what is playing. but it's even more fun when a movie as weird and wonderful as "The Pez Outlaw" is playing.

Description: Small-town eccentricity meets global subterfuge in this mad-but-true documentary. Steve Glew's friendly Midwestern veneer hides a stunning truth - the man known as THE PEZ OUTLAW is in fact an international smuggler. Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Steve flew to Europe to smuggle limited edition Pez dispensers into the US illegally. He practically became rich overnight, but was also thrust into the cuthroat world of Pez dispenser collecting, controlled by the all-powerful man known as The Pezident.
