SCREENING: Sasha Waters Freyer, Madison, WI, Apr. 4

Sasha’s (JSF, Vol.10) new documentary is screening at the Wisconsin Film Festival on Friday, 4/4, at 7pm. It’s called This American Gothic and is “a history of one of the most famous paintings in the world and a quirky portrait of Eldon, Iowa, population 998, site of the house that inspired it.” The hour-long film explores not just the painting as a symbol but the deep and sometimes strange [my word] importance of rural America to the national identity.
