‘Cheeseheads: The Documentary’ presented by Mead Library at Weill

Mead Public Library will host the Sheboygan premiere of the film, “Cheeseheads: The Documentary,” by filmmaker/producer John Mitchell, on Sunday, Jan 31.

The film will be screened at 2 p.m. at the Weill Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Sheboygan. Those who attend will have an opportunity to “walk the red carpet” and may dress glam, show Wisconsin spirit in a creative way, or come as you are.

From 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., participants may join John Mitchell for an after-party in the Rocca Meeting Room at Mead Public Library. Participants may meet and talk to Mitchell and autographed DVDs will be on sale for $20 with $5 going to purchase DVDs for public high schools and libraries in Wisconsin (cash or check only). Food and beverages with a Wisconsin flair will be offered to guests.

The “Cheeseheads” Sheboygan premiere screening and party are free and open to all, sponsored by the Mead Public Library Foundation and the Friends of Mead Public Library. The film is rated PG (all audiences) and is one hour and 52 minutes in length.

“Cheeseheads: The Documentary” is the story of a man’s journey to rediscover his Wisconsin roots after twenty years away. It also looks into the deeper meaning of being a Cheesehead, well beyond the clichéd notion represented in the media, and discovers that Wisconsin is a place like none other, filled with some of the most hard-working, passionate, and generous people on earth, who are obsessed with beer, cheese, and football, especially when all three involve the Green Bay Packers.

Some parts of the documentary were filmed at Plymouth cheese manufacturers and Antoinette, the Big Cow, is also included.

“What started out as my journey to discover the Cheesehead passion, turned into the journey of a lifetime. This film is an intimate and humorous exploration of that sense of place that makes you who you are, about the amazing people you meet along the way, and about being a part of something bigger than one’s self,” said Mitchell.
