Woodland Pattern Experimental Film/Video Series
Presented by the UWM Department of Film
ProjectorTalk (Ages 6 & Up):
Live film performances by Grant Wiedenfeld
Grant Wiedenfeld in person!
ProjectorTalk: A projector speaks her images onscreen, and a poets voice
offscreen talks to her, with her, when she listens in the dark. This unique
mode of performance plays with a purring machine in place of a stage, and
speaks to the lyric child at heart, on sleeves, or climbing in the trees. A
native of Des Moines, Iowa, Grant Wiedenfeld is an MFA candidate (nearly
graduated!) at UW-Milwaukee. His films have screened at Media City Film
Festival, the London Film Festival, and TIE, The International Experimental
Films to be screened/performed (subject to change):
