(Signature Move Official Website) “It’s a feminist, queer, powerful female story that’s radical because it normalizes everybody and all identities.” And nobody gets hurt. - Lena Singer (Chicago Magazine) The Hyphenated-Americans Film Festival will feature 11 films about Americans with intersecting identities informing their unique experiences of being American. The films will highlight that being American is being a hyphenated-American. This film festival is a response to the current political moment and celebrates the diversity vital to the American experience. This festival has films ranging from documentaries and dramas to a comedy special. This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
