CLEVELAND, Miss.— The Bologna Performing Arts Center (BPAC) is proud to present LILY TOPPLES THE WORLD, Wednesday, April 13, at 6 p.m. Admission to the film is free.
LILY TOPPLES THE WORLD follows 20-year-old Lily Hevesh — the world’s greatest domino toppler and the only woman in her field — in a coming-of-age story of artistry, passion, and unlikely triumph. Immediately following the film screening, director and producer Jeremy Workman will host a Q&A with audience members.
LILY TOPPLES THE WORLD follows Hevesh as she rises as an artist, role model and young woman. Filmed for over three years across countless cities and featuring appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Katy Perry, Will Smith, YouTuber Casey Neistat and a steady stream of Gen-Z creators, LILY TOPPLES THE WORLD is a coming-of-age story cloaked within a unique portrait of an artist, a story of how passion and artistry can make dreams come true, and an unlikely American tale of a quiet Chinese adoptee who transforms into a global artistic force with over 1 billion YouTube views. From director Jeremy Workman (The World Before Your Feet) and from executive producer Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), in her first film in a producing role.
The last free screening that is part of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers will be “The Neutral Ground” on Monday, April 25. “The Neutral Ground,” documents New Orleans’ fight over monuments and America’s troubled romance with the Lost Cause. In 2015, director CJ Hunt was filming the New Orleans City Council’s vote to remove four confederate monuments.
All films will be screened at 6 p.m. in the evening followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. Admission is free to all Southern Circuit films. Visit www.bolognapac.com for additional information about these and other performances, or contact the BPAC Ticket Office at (662) 846-4626.
