Argenta Film Series to Screen Award Winning Documentary from Arkansas Native
Little Rock, AR- The Little Rock Film Festival and Argenta Arts Foundation are presenting a screening of the documentary feature film, Just Like Us, April 26th at 7p.m. at the Argenta Community Theater as part of the Argenta Film Series. Arkansas native and film producer, Taylor Feltner, will be in attendance and will be available for question and answer after the screening.
The documentary features Egyptian-American comedian Ahmed Ahmed along with a host of critically acclaimed international stand-up comedians.
