Join The Arts Council of Central Louisiana on Friday, September 22nd at the Hearn Stage for a screening of Pushing Dead, the first film in the 2017 – 2018 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers.

Southern Circuit is the South’s only tour of filmmakers, providing communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film. Southern Circuit provides organizations with the opportunity to screen work from emerging filmmakers and some of the medium’s most respected directors. The Arts Council of Central Louisiana is one of only two screening partners in Louisiana. The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.

About the film:

When a struggling writer, HIV positive for 20+ years, accidentally deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much. In this new era of sort-of universal care, can he take on a helpless bureaucracy or come up with $3000 a month to buy meds on his own?

Starring: James Roday, Danny Glover, Robin Weigert, Khandi Alexander, Tom Riley
