The Wisconsin Film Festival surprised us today with the early rollout of its 2021 lineup, happening online from May 13 to 20. We’re scrambling to speed up some proper coverage our wonderful film team has in the works—look for that on Friday. But we also wanted to let you know that Tone Madison has something of its own in the festival: The Apocalypse Team, a short documentary about Madison’s own Ellie Erickson and Koriana Kent. Videographer/editor Paddy Cassidy worked with us to offer a look into the pair’s East Side home and workshop, where they repair instruments, create art, make music, and charm visitors with a seemingly endless stream of warped banter.

The Apocalypse Team will screen as an opener to Becoming Geppetto, Dale Lindquist’s feature-length documentary about the father-and-son luthiers of Petros Guitars in Kaukauna. We submitted our short to the festival on something of a whim, so it’s an honor to be included and exciting to be paired up so nicely with another film about Wisconsin instrument-makers.

At a time when Madison is going through a lot of change, we want Tone Madison to be something you can count on. You can rely on us to spotlight the artists, musicians, and ideas that make up the fabric of our city. You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 

 

But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.

 

If you make a new monthly donation today, NewsMatch will match it 24x! Will you help us continue to tell Madison's stories?

Maybe later
