LAKE MICHIGAN MONSTER

USA – Wisconsin 80 Minutes  – NARRATIVE FEATURE – Directed by Ryland Brickson Cole Tews

Banned in four lakes, this madcap comedy (filmed in black-and-white) harkens back to creature features of yore with a briny aesthetic all its own, harkening to the absurdist fantasy stylings of Guy Maddin.
