It’s Time
is a thoughtful film reenacts the Ole Miss sports tragedy turned inspirational story as told by filmmakers Wendy Yamano.

Based on real-life events, It’s Time documents a time when Roy Lee “Chucky” Mullins tackled Brad Gaines and the impact shattered four vertebrae in Mullins’ cervical spine leaving him a quadriplegic. But that was just the beginning of the story. The national outpouring of support and an unlikely friendship between Mullins and Gaines born of fate, faith, and family in the aftermath of a tragedy that still resonates to this day. This film stars Emmy-nominated Pierson Fodé as Brad Gaines, Sedale Threatt Jr. as Chucky Mullins, Bradford Gaines Jr. (the real-life son of Brad Gaines) as young Brad, and Timmy Richardson as young Chucky.

The City That Sold America is a riveting documentary by executive producer Mary Warlick.

The City That Sold America reveals, with intriguing insights and wistful nostalgia, the confluence of Chicago’s creative talent, business savvy, grit and determination that changed the country and our relationship with popular culture. This film explores the threshold of the 20th Century, a melting pot of adventurous immigrants, creative mavericks, and freedom-seeking African Americans and how they all shaped consumerism as we now know it.
