The award-winning film “The Rock ‘N’ Roll Dreams of Duncan Christopher” will screen at the University of Oklahoma on Thursday, January 20 as part of its college tour.
“We wanted to give this film to the heart of Oklahoma before we release it nationally,” said Blake Ewing, an associate producer of the film. “Students are the future. We want to give them this preview as a gift and also get them involved in turning Oklahoma into a filmmaking state.”
Filmmakers Jack Roberts and Justin Monroe, both of Tulsa, shot the film entirely in Oklahoma, largely featuring Oklahoma actors and crew. This was the first full-length motion picture release for the duo.
The film tells the story of the awkward and mostly untalented Duncan Christopher, who, after an early mid-life crisis, moves to the big city of Tulsa to pursue his rock and roll dreams and face his demons in the brutal underground world of karaoke.
The screening will take place at 9 p.m. on Thursday, January 20 at Meacham Auditorium and is free and open to the public.
After the screening, the film will host a karaoke party at 11 p.m. at O’Connell’s, where attendees will get to interact with those involved with the film, have fun and even win prizes when they connect with the film on social media
Other schools on the tour include The University of Tulsa, Oklahoma State University, The University of Central Oklahoma and Northeastern State University.
