Milwaukee Film Festival 2017 – Day 6: Girl Unbound, I Am Evidence, The Blood Is at the Doorstep
By Andrea Thompson
If justice wasn’t the right theme for day five of the Milwaukee Film Festival, it definitely fits for day six. All the films today are about justice being denied, and how that affects a life, especially when the reason is due to a factor that can’t really be helped, such as race or gender. When such circumstances exist, watching a movie about it is akin to stepping into another world that exists right alongside our own. Perhaps lurking is the right word, because sometimes these places and everything they represent seem to be just waiting for us to make one wrong turn so they can swallow us whole.
