Our pick for October 25: “Love, Gilda”
Synopsis: Let iconic comedienne Gilda Radner tell you about her life in her own words. Recently unearthed audio tapes, rare home video footage, and diary entries read by modern comedians influenced by her work (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph) mix with interviews with comedy legends (Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Martin Short) to provide fresh perspective on the amazing highs (“SNL”) and the painful lows (an eating disorder, ovarian cancer) that she faced with a remarkably indomitable spirit.
During the fest, Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly and I will be doing a Cinebuds Milwaukee Film Festival pick of the day. Each day we’ll pick a film that you should see on the next day, so you’ll have plenty of time to plan.
Listen to our conversation and read more below to find out more about the film we’re choosing for October 25.
