“All In The Family” was presented in the “Dear MKE” shorts program at the Milwaukee Film Festival on October 9, 2014. I will be reviewing each short – most under five minutes in length – and gauging whether they are worthy of expansion into a longer-form short or feature.
All In The Family continues Milwaukee’s long-running infatuation with all things Harley-Davidson, even though we are four years removed from a horrible labor deal that soured people’s opinions of the “family” in charge of the motorcycle company. This one plays out like an advertisement for their Harley-Davidson museum rather than a picture of how they fit into the fabric of Milwaukee. Maybe the higher-ups at Harley are starting to distance themselves from the state that has brought them so much success? Anyway, it’s a pretty useless short. Skip it.
