Sundance Update: Tulsa Filmmaker Gets Good Buzz

Regular AltTulsa readers will recall our earlier post about Four Sheets to the Wind, a new film written and directed by Tulsa's Sterlin Harjo.

The film was screened last week at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, and word from the festival is extremely good. Our sources say that the film was a hit with Sundance audiences. A success at Sundance can lead to a lucrative distribution deal and wide release of the film.

We haven't seen Sterlin's movie, but we're optimistic that he will land a deal for Four Sheets.

Oklahoma is a long way from Hollywood, of course, but it would be great to have a homegrown bit of Tinsel Town here in Tulsa.
