WATCH: Special Interview with Director/Co-Writer/Editor/Producer Kirill Mikhanovsky in celebration of Milwaukee Day!

Medical transport driver Vic is running further and further behind schedule, as he shuttles his Russian grandfather and émigré friends to a funeral, navigates closed roads, and befriends one of his clients, Tracy (Lauren “Lolo” Spencer in a breakout performance), a vibrant young woman with ALS. This locally made Sundance/Cannes indie darling returns to Milwaukeee in an encore homecoming tour, showcasing a hilarious, compassionate, and intersectional portrait of American dreams and disenchantment.


"GIVE ME LIBERTY is a full-blown farce on wheels, a master class in controlled, escalating chaos." - Los Angeles Times


"GIVE ME LIBERTY functions as one of the most resonant portrayals of allyship, achieved through actual deeds instead of empty gestures." - AV CLUB


"Made on a micro-budget with lots of invigorating rough edges, this distinctive movie is like an underclass daytime version of Martin Scorsese's AFTER HOURS, reaffirming the resilience of the American Dream even amidst spiraling disorder." - Hollywood Reporter
