Lioness Media Arts will kick off the new year with a special new partnership and screening series coming to your town in 2015. The racial injustice raging in Ferguson, MO and across the country implores us all to join the dialogue. Look out for our very special announcement and invitation to be a part of the change that America needs.


Heartland, an award winning documentary film by Emmy Award winner Rachel Lyon explores our national epidemic of hate crimes through the lens of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Here two crimes, over 90 years apart, are impacting media, race, crime and punishment in communities today.
The film begins in Tulsa, where two white men drove through the African-American neighborhood of Greenwood, targeting blacks at random, killing three and leaving two in critical condition in 2012. The film follows the murders, social media uproar, manhunt, capture and prosecution of two suspects who faced the death penalty.
Like no other documentary exploring this topic, Hate Crimes in the Heartland reveals how racial animosity haunts American culture by exploring the most violent race riot in our history, the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot. Set in the same Tulsa neighborhood, the thorny lessons of the past are still surging into present-day unrest.
Co-producer Pi Isis Ankhra and associate producers Reggie Turner and Bavand Karim join Rachel Lyon on the Project. Partners include the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Harvard Law School, New Jersey City University, Northern Kentucky University, DePaul University, Northeast Church of Christ of Oklahoma City and the John Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice..
