2015 Nohl Fellow Frankie Latina offers a work-in-progress test screening of his latest film, China Test Girls. It features the rich palette of vibrant colors, dynamic symmetrical compositions, stylish fashions, dramatic Milwaukee locations, and preternatural attention to detail that we associate with Latina's work. China Test Girls follows an ambitious photographer as she is sucked into a labyrinth of intrigue and danger when the “wrong” camera--and its film--falls into her possession, and it climaxes in an explosion of desperate violence as the menacing antagonists stop at nothing to get that one photo that can bring a kingdom down.

UPSTREAM SALMON features the premiere of The Watering Hole, a short movie by 2015 Nohl Fellow Zach Hill. He shares a program that celebrates the urge to go against the flow and lay the status quo to rest with other queer makers by showcasing a variety of moving image and video works.
