This is a marathon screening in which no one who was rejected from the Milwaukee Underground Film Festival this year is denied screen time for at least one of their works. Admission is free for the entire 9 hours of films. Here we stand, here we screen. What was once a solitary experience of rejection has become, through a funny faux pas, a building of community.
