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 Cinema Exposition.
