Wisconsin State Journal writers Tom Alesia and Gayle Worland gave their recommendations on the films to see this year at the Wisconsin Film Festival, and Mad City Chickens was among the top five! Here's their comments:
Filmmakers Tashai Lovington and Robert Lughai use just about every film-student technique in the book for this film - including the theme song from "2001: A Space Odyssey." But the result, nonetheless, is a charming, lovable (and exhaustive) look at Madison's urban chicken subculture. A must for local yolk-els.
