A Good Man launches Oak Park "Films for $5ive" series

Several Kartemquin documentaries will be part of a new "Films for $5ive" documentary screening series at the Madison Street Theatre in Oak Park, Illinois, starting next Friday, January 13th at 7pm with A Good Man. The film's Associate Producer Rachel Pikelny will attend the screening.
 
The nine-week “Films for $5ive” series will feature 4 screenings each weekend:  Friday nights at 7pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 7pm, and Sunday afternoons at 2pm.  Each weekend will feature 2 films, each of which will screen twice, with each weekend’s films focusing loosely on a global theme and offering different perspectives.  As often as schedules will allow, the directors, producers and others involved in the making of the films will be present to discuss their work following each event.
 
The series is co-programmed by Kartemquin and Steve Dixon of Ruthless Films, whose documentaries Tony and Janina's American Wedding, Welcome to Anatevka and Lipstick & Dynamite (all directed by Ruth Leitman) will screen in the series.
 
The Kartemquin documentaries screening in the series include Inquiring Nuns; Refrigerator Mothers; Typeface; and Golub: Late Works are the Catastrophes. Films by other Illinois-based documentary producers will also be included in the series, including KTQ Labs graduates Louder Than A Bomb and Maria Finitzo's double bill Life Lessons / My Mother's Idea.
