Milwaukee Film Festival 2017 – Day 8: Restless Creature: Wendy Whelan, The Work, Infinity Baby
By Andrea Thompson
ow we cope with adversity is crucial to who we become. When should we fight? When should we gracefully accept that fighting is pointless? Each film that I see on day eight of the Milwaukee Film Festival explores this question in radically different ways. In one, a ballerina struggles to accept that her career must either end or enter a new phase. In another men gather together to process past traumas. In the third, characters do their best to avoid any kind of struggle, which usually leads to problems of an entirely different kind. But each try to cope as best as they can with what life throws their way.
