To the casual observer, the small town of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, may have little to offer to outsiders. But in the face of rising employment and closing shops, a local entrepreneur has devised a plan to save his fading town: create small museums to bring business to Two Rivers. The biggest lure is the Hamilton printing factory, which has been turned into a draw for artists -- local, regional, and international -- who meet on a weekly basis for workshops. Old-fashioned techniques converge with modern ideas in this documentary directed by Justine Nagan. ~ Kimber Myers
