WI Film Festival: Americans Smell Good

Longtime WFF contributor, Emir Cakaroz's latest film is a charmingly serpentine document of his time spent here in the dairy state. Emigrating from Turkey to seek a career as a filmmaker, Emir arrives in Wisconsin, starts a family of his own, gets a job teaching, and meets a fascinating variety of people while establishing his new life in Milwaukee. His mom, back in Turkey but ever-present via Zoom, checks in regularly, peppering Emir with questions both sardonic and full of her own particular version of motherly love. Americans Smell Good combines the personal narratives of Cakaroz’s previous films, Two Photographs, Revza, and Dad's Apple with his fly-on-the wall observational documentaries, One Money and Riverwest Film & Video. The result is a singularly funny and moving feature that mashes the essay film and the portrait doc to create something that is uniquely and recognizably “Emir Cakaroz”. (BR)
