Well, folks, it's back. The 37th
annual Ann Arbor Film Festival
starts its six-day run Tuesday at the
Michigan Theater. The oldest event
of its kind in the country, this year's
festival includes everything from
narrative shorts, to animation, to
documentaries and feature-length
films. The lineup is guaranteed to be
entertaining and interesting.
One of the biggest titles in this
year's festival is Barbara
Sonneborn's "Regret to Inform," a
documentary about Vietnam. The
72-minute piece is also a nominee
for this year's Academy Award for
feature documentary.
But it is experimental films of all
lengths that make the Ann Arbor fest
what it has become. Small films by

many directors still waiting for their
"big break" will show on screen, and
in many unusual forms with some
strange subject matter. The films and
directors come from all across the
country and world - from as nearby
as Iowa City to as far off as Vienna,
Austria and Christ Church, New

the form of "Come Unto Me: The
