by La Lucha Film

Greetings, movie aficionados and community leaders of South Carolina!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce a very special screening event that’s not only close to our hearts but promises to evoke profound memories and emotions for many of us.

? Date: August 26th ⏰ Time: 3:00 PM ? Venue: The Nickelodeon Theatre, Columbia, SC

A Journey Back Home

Director Rand Courtney, a Columbia native, will be returning to his hometown to screen his latest work, “La Lucha: Getting Schooled in America.” This is not just any movie premiere; it’s a voyage back to Rand’s roots. Join us as old friends, families, local influencers, and decision-makers come together for an exclusive view of this moving masterpiece.

From At-Risk Youth to Visionary Director

The film spotlights the lives of at-risk students in America, a narrative Rand is deeply familiar with. Growing up in South Carolina in the ’90s, he too faced the many challenges that come with being an at-risk youth. The adversities Rand encountered during his formative years not only shaped his character but deeply ingrained in him a passion to tell stories that need to be heard.

“La Lucha: Getting Schooled in America” is not just a movie, it’s a reflection of Rand’s own past. His personal connection and understanding of the intricate issues faced by these students make this film a poignant and raw depiction of reality.

Why Should You Attend?

Rand’s personal journey, from the streets of SC to the big screens of Hollywood, prepared him for this very moment—to craft a story that resonates with relevancy and authenticity. His young life, fraught with struggles, bestowed upon him a unique lens to approach this film’s vital themes.

For many in our community, this story is not just another movie; it’s a glimpse into the lives of our neighbors, friends, and perhaps even our younger selves.

So, if you’re in for a powerful cinematic experience that promises to be more than just entertainment, but a call to empathy and understanding, make your way to The Nickelodeon Theatre on August 26th.

Join us for a memorable afternoon of film, reflection, and community spirit. Embrace the opportunity to witness a work of art that’s deeply rooted in our shared history and culture.

See you at the movies! ??
