See Tom Cruise in Collateral at the Wisconsin Film Festival!

From the Official Blog:

The 12th annual Wisconsin Film Festival in Madison, Wisconsin has announced this year’s lineup, which includes a screening of the Tom Cruise thriller Collateral!


New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis will present the screening of Collateral on Friday, April 16 in the Orpheum Theatre, which was directed by University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate Michael Mann. After the film, there will be a discussion about the visual language in the film to help audience members understand why Mann made certain visual choices, and how those choices affected the movie.

“What this sprung from was the idea of taking a film that the audience would be familiar with, but then talk about it through the eyes of someone who is a film professional, with the idea of helping the audience explore what to look for,” said festival director Meg Hamel in the Wisconsin State Journal. Collateral was the first feature film to be shot in Viper FilmStream HD, which means Mann used high definition cameras to film scenes that created grittier, richer scenes of Los Angeles at night.

Running five days between April 14 to April 18, the Wisconsin Film Festival will screen classics, documentaries, foreign films and more at various locations on campus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Orpheum Theatre, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, the Wisconsin Union Theater, and the Chazen Museum of Art. Tickets are on sale at the festival’s website, or if you live in the area, you can visit the festival box office on the second floor of the Memorial Union.
