How could a 1980s how-to-care-for-your-ferret video not be awkwardly hilarious? And that's a taste of what the guys from The Found Footage Festival — which screens at the Michigan Theater on Wednesday, November 14 — have up their sleeves.

$11. 9:15pm. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8397. www.michtheater.org. —SR
