Milwaukee Film Membership Manager Kristopher Pollard and 88Nine Music Director Justin Barney sit down every day for the Milwaukee Film Festival and pick the movies you should see. Here is today’s pick.
Justin Barney: What’s the pick for today, Kpolly?
Kpolly: I’d highly recommend seeing “Supergirl.”
Justin Barney: What’s it about?
Kpolly: It’s a documentary about an young Orthodox Jewish girl, who participates in competitive powerlifting.
Justin Barney: Way cool.
Kpolly: Yeah. Two worlds you wouldn’t necessarily put together. She’s dealing with being a teen, and preparing for her bat mitzvah, all while heavily competing in this punishing sport. So it’s a true sports film, but with a very fresh voice.
Justin Barney: Wow, that’s really two different aspects of life, and culture coming together.
Kpolly: It’s great and Naomi Kutin, the star of the film, will be at the screening with her family. It’s at 7:00pm at the Downer Theater.
