Gettin’ Grown Screened At Milwaukee International Film Festival

by Charlesetta Thompson In the summer of 2003, Milwaukee native Aaron Greer was shooting a movie called Gettin’ Grown. On location. On Booth Sreet. There have been a lot of changes since then. A lot of awards, including First Place in the Urban Kidz category at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, and Finalist for Best Feature Film at the International Family Film Festival in the Los Angeles area. Most recently, back in Aaron’s home town, Getting’ Grown was screened at the Milwaukee International Film Festival on Thursday, Oct. 21 at the Oriental Theatre. On Oct. 23 the cast and crew were invited to a “Family Reunion” and DVD release party at the Black Historical Society. Copies of the DVD will be available soon through the film’s website, “www.gettingrown.com.”
