Dead Man's Carnival: A Conversation With Pinkerton Xyloma
Directed by Casey T. Malone, Wauwatosa, WI, 15:31
Award-winning filmmaker, Casey T. Malone, turns his lens onto Milwaukee's performance collaborative and DIY punk rock circus, Dead Man's Carnival, to create a unique short documentary told through the philosophies and historical tales of Professor Pinkerton Xyloma, ringmaster of the carnival. The film stands as a testament and love letter to those artists who embody the DIY spirit to create something from nothing and a reminder that the world is not one thing.


P.T. Barnum The Lost Legend

Directed by Corey Boutilier, Stamford, CT, 78:00
P.T. Barnum's birthplace of Bethel, CT commissioned a lifesize statue for his 200th birthday even though many people in town had forgotten that he was even from there. Watch as sculptor David Gesualdi brings P.T. Barnum back to main street. And along the journey of creating a lost wax bronze statue, learn about the life and times of this lost legend.
