With more than 300 film over 15 days, you’ve got seemingly endless options during the 2019 Milwaukee Film Festival. If you need a little help deciding which films to see, the Cinebuds are here to help! Every day during the festival they’re sharing a daily pick.
On today’s episode, they’re previewing “Who Let the Dogs Out,” and, yes, it is a documentary about the Baha Men and that song. It turns out that song has a wild history. “In an NPR-like pop-culture history excavation, Ben Sisto weaves a tale about gender, race, cultural appropriation, showbiz, and (of course) legal battles,” according to the Milwaukee Film Festival description. “But most of all, this is a story about the power of influence, and how it often stretches back much further than we realize.” Who knew? The movie is playing Monday, Oct. 28, at 6:30 p.m. at the Oriental Theatre.
