Circle Cinema Film Festival 2019
Red Dog (2019) / Q&A with filmmaker Luke Dick – Thursday, July 11th at 7:00pm – Tickets!
Circle Cinema Film Festival presents RED DOG. Q&A following film with Oklahoma native Luke Dick, now a Nashville-based songwriter, singer and filmmaker.
Award-winning country songwriter Luke Dick spent his childhood living in The Red Dog, the rowdiest and most popular strip club in Oklahoma City during the 1970’s oil boom. For five years, it was the place that Luke and his mother called home. As a single, dope-addicted teenage runaway, his mom used a fake I.D. and turned to stripping to make ends meet. He grew up amidst the drugs, the danger, and the never-ending party.
Now 30 years later, Luke has a toddler and a newborn of his own. As he began asking his mom questions about his own childhood, she was much more forthcoming than he ever imagined. Luke decided to travel back to Oklahoma to talk to the people that he once thought of as family. RED DOG, directed by Luke Dick himself, is a fascinating story of sacrifice, indulgence and what it takes to come to terms with your own story.
RED DOG is being screened as part of Circle Cinema Film Festival. After debuting in 2018 as part of Circle Cinema’s 90th birthday celebration, the Circle Cinema Film Festival is back in 2019 with an exciting showcase of original storytelling through film, art, music and experiences. The festival brings a stellar lineup of diverse films and special guests to Tulsa, including some fresh from this year’s Sundance Film Festival and SXSW. Film programming, with an emphasis on Oklahoma-centric independent films and filmmakers, will include a mix of documentaries and features along with some classic and even silent films.
