Tomorrow night (Tuesday, September 26), the Tulsa American Film Festival screens the Tulsa premiere of TOMMY, an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary on the life of Northeast Oklahoma's boxing champion Tommy Morrison.
Don't miss this one-night-only screening at Circle Cinema!
Tulsa Premiere of TOMMY, and Q&A with Special Guests
Born into a troubled family in the American heartland, Morrison’s initial emergence as a fighter was bolstered by a starring role in Rocky V. A few years later, he beat George Foreman for the WBO heavyweight title, and seemed primed for more stardom, even in the face of blown opportunities and upset losses. Everything changed in early 1996, when he tested positive for HIV, forcing him into retirement. From there, Morrison’s life spiraled further and further downward, plagued by drug problems, jail time, and most alarmingly and bizarrely, an eventual denial that he had the virus at all.
Location: Circle Cinema
Date: Tuesday, September, 26, 2017
Time: 6:30 PM, light reception; 7:30 PM, screening
Q&A following the film with directors, Gentry Kirby and Erin Leyden; Tommy's ex-wife, Dawn Freeman-Hosterman; and his trainer, Tony Holden.
Tickets: $10. Purchase via www.filmfreeway.com/festival/TulsaAmericanFilmFestival/tickets
The TOMMY screening is part of TAFF's year-round showcase of American cinema.
ESPN 30 for 30 was originally inspired by ESPN’s 30th anniversary. The original Peabody, Emmy-winning and Academy Award-winning series has now produced over 90 films. www.espn.com/30for30 ... See MoreSee Less
