"Ash Is Purest White" is the latest Milwaukee Film Festival recommendation for you.

WATCH: Three to see - Matt's picks for Day 4 of the 2019 Milwaukee Film Festival

It's Day 4 of the Milwaukee Film Festival, the Packers are currently winning (*knocks on wood*) and I've got another batch of recommendations for you. But in case all of that isn't exciting enough for you, today's three to see picks come with a very special guest!

Indeed, before we dig into my picks – ranging from a local music showcase on the big screen to a gangster drama from a Chinese master and a documentary that may be more fiction to truth – I got the honor of chatting with Jennie Livingston, the director of the iconic '90s drag ball documentary "Paris is Burning" and the 2019 Milwaukee Film Festival keynote speaker. Let's see what she has to say about looking back her influential film, the state of cinema today and discovering the glory of the Oriental Theatre. And then let's see some movies!
