In 2018 Milwaukee Film took over operations of the historic Oriental Theatre, a nearly century-old lavish theater palace whose design and name are prime examples of the concept of Orientalism. As part of the Festival’s focus on representation, identity, and inclusion, we invite you to join us for a frank panel discussion (featuring Adam Carr and Nancy Wang Yuen) speaking to the historical use of “Oriental” in American culture and cinema, kicking off a multi-year interrogation of our cinema’s name and decor.
