‘Look to the Sky’ could screen in city

The documentary “Look to the Sky” will be shown at 7 p.m. June 7 at AMC Fort Wayne 20 theater, 3930 E. Dupont Road, if at least 56 tickets are bought by May 31.

The screening is sponsored by City Life, a Christian organization based in the south side of town that aims to help high school students become active and engaged community members through programs on financial literacy, tutoring and civic engagement.

“Look to the Sky” was made by Brett Culp, an award-winning filmmaker who encourages community engagement. His movies have used superheros as metaphors for the heroism of service to one’s community. “[Look to the Sky] is about the power of the individual to make a change in their community,” said Andrew Kiess, an administrator for City Life.

Kiess said he coordinated with Culp online to get the showing in Fort Wayne.

Culp operates a nonprofit organization, The Rising Heroes Project, to make films to support  other nonprofits’ causes and build up communities and leaders, according to Culp’s website. The films are created with volunteer work, without an advertising or marketing budget, so the costs are minimal and can be provided to other charities for free.

The proceeds from the June 7 showing will go to support City Life and its programs. A small portion of the ticket sales will go to AMC to pay for using the theater.

Those interested in the event should buy tickets in advance on tugg.com so that AMC can allot an appropriately sized theater, Kiess said.
