Produced by FITC

Tonight’s program features two short dramas with screenplays by local writers—Harold of Orange and Finders Keepers, which were produced by Film in the Cities (FITC) in its heyday. FITC’s unique Minnesota-based stories were instrumental to the development of today’s local moving image production community and significant to the national field.

Finders Keepers
A young Minnesota farmer finds his world thrown into confusion when his dog absconds with a sock full of money belonging to a drug ring. Directed by Mikhail Bogin, produced by Rick Weise, screenplay by Gary Jenneke. 1983, 16mm, 30 min.

Harold of Orange
This contemporary satire centers on a tribal trickster and his plan to obtain corporate funding from a philanthropic foundation. Directed by Rick Weise, produced by Dianne Brennan, screenplay by Gerald Vizenor (Chippewa). 1984, 16mm, 30 min.

A discussion and reception follows the screening.

Produced by FITC is the final event of a three-part program paying tribute to the evolution of Film in the Cities (FITC).
