Feed the Fish
Joe Peterson (Ross Partridge) is a burned-out kids book writer who’s approaching his mid-life crisis. With his career at a standstill and his relationship in shambles, he leaves town with his best buddy to do the Polar Bear Plunge in the dead of winter in northern Wisconsin in an attempt to reignite his fire. On his quest he meets: Axel, an inspirational mentor (Barry Corbin of Northern Exposure fame); The Sheriff, an obsessed law enforcement professional (Tony Shalhoub); and Sif, his muse and a hockey player (Katie Aselton). Good thing they’re all related! Written and directed by Wisconsin native Michael Matzdorff.
FEED THE FISH made its Chicago Premiere at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on November 2, 2010, earning multiple Best of the Midwest Award nominations and winning for Best Feature Film.
