Tuesday night saw KOTM hitting the Chicago screen for the last time as part of the 41st CIFF.  There was another great crowd, which made it that much worse when the film started and the audio kept cutting in and out.  This is a filmmaker's nightmare, and suddenly we were experiencing it.  I tried to keep my cool and find a Festival staffer to figure out what was wrong, but I was freaking out on the inside.  At first I thought maybe the problem would go away, but the film kept playing, and suddenly people were missing dialogue. Eventually they finally got a clue that they should stop the film, rather than let it keep playing while the audience sat there unable to hear what the characters were saying.
