Special Guests Phil Harder and Al Milgrom Attending!

Minneapolis filmmaker Al Milgrom has worn many hats throughout his career—documentarian, world traveler and cinema pioneer being a few. In this documentary feature from Phil Harder, we follow the now 95-year-old Milgrom through his life and living legacy.

From his first introduction to film, via Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid, to a tour through his personal home “film museum,” A Work in Progress is an inspiring portrait of one of Minnesota’s leading artistic voices. Milgrom himself discusses his journey as a filmmaker and his current projects, including his continued work on the 1959 documentary Russian Journey: The Story of a Filmmaker’s Travels Behind the Curtain.

While the film expounds on Milgrom’s history and his lasting influence as founder of the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, it also takes a look at the filmmaker’s personal journey in navigating art and the process of filmmaking today.
