Lake Effect's Dan Harmon chats with Paul Attanasio.
Tomorrow evening, the Milwaukee Film Festival will host an evening with Paul Attanasio. In this city, Attanasio may be best known for being the brother of Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, but his broader fame is as a screenwriter and producer.
Recent incarnations of the Milwaukee Film Festival have included screenings of some classic silent films. On the heels of 2010’s showing of Metropolis and last year’s showing of Blackmail, the festival will feature a 1930 classic agrarian tale made by Soviet director Alexander Dovzhenko on Friday.
