Milwaukee Premiere! The last of three festival screenings. JoAnn Persch, RSM, and Pat Murphy, RSM, of Chicago (featured in the film) in person for a lively Q&A with the audience. Advance tickets are no longer available. The only way to get tickets now is to join the RUSH TICKETS line at the venue to claim any unclaimed seats.
