The filmmaker from Middleton spent 18 years pursuing an interview with the retired Green Bay Packers quarterback. His documentary, billed as “a mostly true story about Brett Favre,” chronicles his one-sided bromance with the Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback.
“Finding Favre” will have its first showings in the Green Bay area at 11 a.m. July 23 and 1:15 p.m. July 24 at De Pere Cinema, 417 George St., De Pere. Tickets are $10 in advance at eventbrite.com.
The movie, told from perspective of a fan, was shot in real time over the course of 10 years. It features interviews with Bob Harlan, Ron Wolf, Bonita Favre, Jim Carmody, Jeff Bower, Tim Favre, Mike Sherman and Ryan Longwell, among others. It also includes home videos dating as far back as 1999.
It covers such events as the first Fan Fest in 2005, Favre’s last pass as a Packers player, his divorce from the team, his two years with the Minnesota Vikings and his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
“Finding Favre” made its world premiere in April in Madison.
