Born to Fly

Oklahoma Premiere

Not just a choreographer, Elizabeth Streb is a wildly extreme action architect. Born to Fly traces the
evolution of Streb’s movement philosophy as she pushes herself and her dancers from the ground,
to the wall, to the sky. Guided by Streb’s theory of movement – to walk on walls, dive through glass, move so fast you disappear and…fly; the film asks: Can adrenaline be a form of medicine?
 
When does movement become art? Why be a part of it? How do race, gender, sexuality, and class
appear on the dancers’ performances, on their bodies? Wrestling these questions, Born to Fly offers
an exhilarating tale of the necessity of art, inspiring a broad audience, hungry for a more tactile and
fierce existence in the world.

Sewing Hope

For 25 years Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) terrorized Northern Uganda. They abducted children and forced them to commit atrocities against their own families and communities. Girls as young as thirteen were degraded to sex slaves for Kony's officers. Now, the war is over, but the decades of brutal conflict have deeply scarred the people of Uganda. Child soldiers return to the very communities they committed violent crimes against, and the girls carry with them a constant reminder of their abuse: their captors' children. These girls and their children are often ostracized by their communities, and most lack the skills they need to provide for their families.Forest Whitaker tells the story of one woman's fight to bring hope back to her nation. Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe resides over Saint Monica's Vocational School in Gulu, Uganda. She lived through the horror created by Kony's LRA and now works to heal the wounds he inflicted on her people. She invites formerly abducted girls to Saint Monica's where they learn skills to provide for their families. Through vocational training, these young women gain independence. Through community with their fellow students, they find forgiveness. Through the restoration of their lost futures, they find hope.

Rough Cut

The award winning film collective from Shawnee, Oklahoma, Outsiders Productions, returns to deadCENTER with Rough Cut, a comedic look at the trials and tribulations of low budget filmmaking. The Outsiders previous screened the short film A Beautiful Day and the superhero feature The Unusual Calling of Charlie Christmas. Rough Cut explores the unlikely journey of a dismantled, dysfunctional, no-budget film crew who find the right script at the wrong time. Witty and comedic with moments of poignance and genuine heartbreak, Rough Cut is an underdog tale set in a world of frustrated artists, eccentric small-town actors, and a hard-working production crew looking for gigs that might put food on the table. Getting the crew back together is going to be difficult enough. Making this movie might just kill them all.

Born to Fly

Oklahoma Premiere

Not just a choreographer, Elizabeth Streb is a wildly extreme action architect. Born to Fly traces the
evolution of Streb’s movement philosophy as she pushes herself and her dancers from the ground,
to the wall, to the sky. Guided by Streb’s theory of movement – to walk on walls, dive through glass, move so fast you disappear and…fly; the film asks: Can adrenaline be a form of medicine?
 
When does movement become art? Why be a part of it? How do race, gender, sexuality, and class
appear on the dancers’ performances, on their bodies? Wrestling these questions, Born to Fly offers
an exhilarating tale of the necessity of art, inspiring a broad audience, hungry for a more tactile and
fierce existence in the world.

The Posthuman Project

World Premiere

The Posthuman Project is the feature film debut of Emmy Award winning music video and animation director Kyle Roberts. In the film, Denny Burke is finally about to graduate high school. Senior year has been one bad thing after another: a broken leg, a broken heart, and -- worst of all -- a broken home. With four of his closest friends, Denny goes on one last rock-climbing trip to prove he's ready to start his adult life... On their trip the five teens receive a genetic boost beyond anything they'd ever imagined. Denny is soon faced with the first big decision of his adult life: does he give up these powers and stay a normal teenager, or does he keep them...and graduate from the human race? With amazing special effects and an inspirational story, The Posthuman Project is exciting fun for the entire family.

Sewing Hope

For 25 years Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) terrorized Northern Uganda. They abducted children and forced them to commit atrocities against their own families and communities. Girls as young as thirteen were degraded to sex slaves for Kony's officers. Now, the war is over, but the decades of brutal conflict have deeply scarred the people of Uganda. Child soldiers return to the very communities they committed violent crimes against, and the girls carry with them a constant reminder of their abuse: their captors' children. These girls and their children are often ostracized by their communities, and most lack the skills they need to provide for their families. Forest Whitaker tells the story of one woman's fight to bring hope back to her nation. Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe resides over Saint Monica's Vocational School in Gulu, Uganda. She lived through the horror created by Kony's LRA and now works to heal the wounds he inflicted on her people. She invites formerly abducted girls to Saint Monica's where they learn skills to provide for their families. Through vocational training, these young women gain independence. Through community with their fellow students, they find forgiveness. Through the restoration of their lost futures, they find hope.

The Posthuman Project

World Premiere

The Posthuman Project is the feature film debut of Emmy Award winning music video and animation director Kyle Roberts. In the film, Denny Burke is finally about to graduate high school. Senior year has been one bad thing after another: a broken leg, a broken heart, and -- worst of all -- a broken home. With four of his closest friends, Denny goes on one last rock-climbing trip to prove he's ready to start his adult life... On their trip the five teens receive a genetic boost beyond anything they'd ever imagined. Denny is soon faced with the first big decision of his adult life: does he give up these powers and stay a normal teenager, or does he keep them...and graduate from the human race? With amazing special effects and an inspirational story, The Posthuman Project is exciting fun for the entire family.

After moving from Walters, OK to Washington DC and the powerful world of politics via her US Senator husband, Harris began an extensive and very public life of Indian political and social activism.Harris' introduction to the federal government began when President Lyndon Johnson assigned her to educate the executive branch of the US government on the unique role of American Indian Tribes and their relationship with the federal government. This course was called 'Indian 101' and was taught to members of Congress and the Senate for over 35 years.In addition to her work in civil rights, world peace, the environment and women's rights, Harris is best known for introducing landmark legislation, such as land return claims to the Taos Pueblo Tribe and the Native tribes of Alaska, and returning federal recognition to the Menominee Tribe.Held in the highest regard by her colleagues for countless social and historic achievements, Harris is now passing her knowledge to a new generation of emerging Indigenous leaders. Harris' latest venture is a cutting-edge program that trains Native professionals to incorporate their own tribes' traditional values and perspectives into their work, while building a global, indigenous coalition. LaDonna Harris: Indian 101 will explore Harris' achievements, the personal struggles that led her to become a voice for Native people, and her contemporary work to reshape Indian Country in America and abroad.

Witty and comedic with moments of poignance and genuine heartbreak, Rough Cut is an underdog tale set in a world of frustrated artists, eccentric small-town actors, and a hard-working production crew looking for gigs that might put food on the table. Getting the crew back together is going to be difficult enough. Making this movie might just kill them all.

Come see the most enduring rock band of all time shower the people of Japan with beautiful rock and roll, featuring 16 live performances of classics rock hits like Walk This Way, Sweet Emotion, Livin’ On the Edge, Love in an Elevator and many more . In March 2011, Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the autumn of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, Aerosmith brought their Back On The Road tour to Japan, a country with which they always had a special relationship. The Japanese fans came out in droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest shows of their distinguished career. This film follows the band on that tour combining full-length live tracks with behind the scenes footage, which is at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful. Aerosmith are truly one of the great rock acts of all time and this incredible concert film brings together tracks from across their storied career.
