An award winning anti-war film written and directed by University of Wisconsin-Superior Associate Professor Brent Notbohm, will be shown during two screenings in Duluth. “Madison” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Teatro Zuccone, 222 E. Superior St.
The plot follows Michael, an acclaimed war correspondent returning from Iraq after four agonizing years. He travels to Madison in search of the youthful idealism he once had as a college student at the University of Wisconsin. Michael looks up his best friend from college, Ben, who maintains a positive outlook on life despite his wife’s recent death. Ben’s precocious 8-year-old daughter, Maddy, forges a unique bond with Michael which eventually leads to the journalist’s cathartic emotional solace.
The film won the jury prize in last year’s Wisconsin Film Festival and was recently nominated for a PRISM award for its depiction of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Tickets for “Madison” available at the door and cost $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors.
