Give Now

Mayfly Days

The most interesting thing going on in movies this weekend isn’t a summer blockbuster. It’s a film that cost less than Batman’s catering bill — a decade-in-the-making labor of love from an Indiana filmmaker named B.D. Kuchera. Full disclosure: I worked on the film’s initial shoot, thirteen years ago; and the director is my brother. Impartial I am not. But it’s part of my job to shine a light on important local cinema; and I feel safe in saying that if I knew nothing about the film — if I just walked into a theater, blind — I would have staggered out confused, frustrated, incensed, and absolutely sure I’d seen something new under the sun.

Peter Noble Kuchera

Originally from Columbus, Indiana, Peter moved to Bloomington in 1998. He completed four years of film study at the University of Minnesota and two years of film production in the Film Cities in St. Paul. He began reviewing movies for WFIU in 2003 and began producing on-air fundraising spots for WTIU in 2006. In 2008 he received a second place award for Best Radio Critic at the Los Angeles Press Club’s First Annual National Entertainment Journalism Awards in 2008. Peter passed away suddenly on June 8, 2009.
