Second Friday Cinema is back with a series of more recent movies with Arkansas connections. KUAR and the Old State House will present a screening of War Eagle, Arkansas (2007) on Friday, Sept. 11, at the Old State House Museum.
ABOUT THE FILM
In 2007, Little Rock businessman and community leader Vincent Insalaco was able to bring his dream of making a movie to reality. War Eagle, Arkansas (originally titled simply War Eagle) is based on the lives of Insalaco's son, Vincent III, and his friend Tim Ballany, whose cerebral palsy keeps him in a wheelchair. Insalaco hired Arkansan Graham Gordy to write the script and gave several other young filmmakers a chance to work on the film. The result was a movie that won several awards at film festivals and is one of the finest films shot in Arkansas in the past decade.
