Join The Arts Council of Central Louisiana on Friday, March 23rd at the Hearn Stage for a screening of Purple Dreams. This film is part of the 2017 – 2018 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. Q & A with the filmmaker will follow the screening.
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.
Black youth stereotypes are turned upside down in the feature documentary film Purple Dreams. A two and a half year journey serves as an inspirational window into the lives of inner-city, at-risk students who succeed at their passion while embracing the transformative power of their arts education.
