Stephen Wardell’s video, Uriah Plays the Alien, will screen at the Milwaukee Underground Film Festival on Saturday, April 27th at 8pm.

"Uriah is an alien whose spaceship crashed on Earth. A family of kids adopt him and teach him how to walk, eat Cheetos, and be human. Their speculations on his goals and on the nature of his existence construct the fiction as it progresses.

The film is also a documentary portrait of the filmmaker's family. Through reenactment, the film observes the process of becoming other, and intentionally challenges the viewer to sit with and engage that feeling."
