Two for the price of one at the Milwaukee Film Festival! Come see films REVZA and Naneek on Tuesday evening as they screen for the last time as part of the Milwaukee Film Festival. REVZA explores the relationship between mother and son through the eyes of Milwaukee-based filmmaker Emir Cakaorz as he travels to Turkey to visit his mother. Naneek follows Vietnam veteran Tim Keenan as he returns to Vietnam to make peace with what has haunted him.

Milwaukee Film Says…


UWM instructor/filmmaker Emir Cakaroz returns to his native Turkey to spend some quality time with his widowed mother. It is a poetic, observational portrait (capturing both the intimate and mundane) of not just the relationship between a mother and her son but also the life of a widow in a patriarchal society.


Vietnam veteran Tim Keenan returns to the land that has haunted him. In search of peace of mind and forgiveness, he revisits the battleground of Dak To and meets with former enemies in order to acknowledge the humanity of the Vietnamese people he fought against.
