A familiar face in Cream City Cinema, Martin Kaszubowski returns with his solo feature debut, EARLYBIRD, the story of a struggling theater owner as he tries to resurrect his business with increasingly outlandish play productions. A meditation on creative careers and the potential for passion fizzling out, this fictional film will hit close to home and provide glimmers of hope for arts patrons and workers alike.
