An Oklahoma documentary film, "Where was God?", will premiere in Tulsa at Circle Cinema theatre at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 17. The film tells the stories of survivors of the devastating tornadoes in Moore, Okla. and Joplin, Mo. It also follows parents, children, first responders and volunteers who recount the destruction and miraculous events that changed their lives forever.
Steven Earp, lead pastor at Elevate Church in Moore, is the film's executive producer. Earp said "We've had great response to this film in the Moore, Edmond and Woodward areas and are excited to continue to spread it throughout Oklahoma, especially Tulsa."
The documentary was directed, produced, edited and filmed in Oklahoma. In addition to the Aug. 17 premiere, there are additional screenings planned in and around the Tulsa and Muskogee area. The film will show in Tulsa at AMC Southroads 20, in Jenks at Riverwalk Movies theater, in Bixby at Starworld 20 Theatre, and in Muskogee at Arrowhead Mall 10 Theatre.
The premiere is open to the public and the cast and crew will be present for a Q&A session. There is also a companion piece of art that is on display at Circle Cinema. The art is titled "Redemption Tree" and is also featured in the film. This piece of art is exclusively at Circle Cinema.
Stephanie LaFevers, Executive Director of Circle Cinema, described the art as being created from pieces left behind after the tornado destruction. She said it includes signs, pieces of metal, paper, and even shoes. LaFevers stated that this film fits perfectly with Circle Cinema's goals. Circle Cinema is a non-profit and an independent movie theater.
