Robert Flaxman, President of FlaxGold, Inc., announced today that FlaxGold’s film "A Labor of Love" will screen at the 2012 Wisconsin Film Festival in Madison at the Union South Marquee Theater on Sunday, April 22 at 4:15 PM.
Associate producer John Iltis and Flaxman will attend. Flaxman will participate in a Q&A session following the screening.
“A Labor of Love” follows a young director and his equally young cast and crew as they attempt to produce their first feature length motion picture. Two weeks before principle photography commenced on their film, their backers insisted that several sex scenes be included to ensure the commerciality of their product.
A predecessor to future reality television shows, “A Labor of Love” examines not only the cinematic process but also exposes the interpersonal relationships of the cast and crew as they confront uncomfortable, yet often humorous situations.

When it opened in theaters in 1976, “A Labor of Love” received excellent reviews from the “Chicago Sun-Times” (Roger Ebert), “Chicago Tribune” (Gene Siskel), the “Los Angeles Times,” and “Variety.”
