Filmmaker Michael Smith, director of MERCURY IN RETROGRADE, will be joined by cast and crew from the film, moderated by Lee Shoquist, critic at ChicagoFilm.com.

"The main reason to rent the film and tune in tonight is to support the Siskel Center," MERCURY IN RETROGRADE Producer Shane Simmons told SCREEN. "By renting the film and tuning in to the Q&A stream, you’re helping them stay afloat and keep bringing us wonderful movies - while we need them most!"
