Heartland dcFF16 Interview

Heartland

The deadCenter 2016 Film Festival has a plethora of options to explore and one subject of interest this year has been LGBTQ representation in Oklahoma. Whether it’s through a documentary like An Act of Love or the satirical comedy of Oh Brother! the subject seems to be heavy on the mind of Oklahoma produced films.

One of the most anticipated of films of the festival, Heartland, tells the story of a young Oklahoma artist who lands back in her mother’s stifling household after her girlfriend dies. To find solace in her situation she finds a temporary escape in a weekend affair with her brother’s girlfriend. The film was filmed and produced locally in Oklahoma and stars Laura Spencer of Big Bang Theory and Bones fame.

Our very own Dustin Sells and Alexandra Bohannon sit down to talk with director Maura Anderson and screenwriter/star Velinda Godfrey. Your hosts talk about the choice of making the film in Oklahoma and how the unique setting impacted the characters and the way the story was told. 

Heartland screens Saturday, June 11 at 5:30pm and Sunday, June 12 at 3:45 PM at Harkins 16 Bricktown!
