New Documentary Features Inspiring Young People Who Are Real-Life Superheroes
The film shares the uplifting stories of young people who have demonstrated the iconic spirit of Superman by becoming real-life superheroes. Stories include: a teen who overcame homelessness, a boy who saved his friend’s life, and a young woman who turned her experiences of being bullied into a positive world-wide self-love movement.
LOOK TO THE SKY screened in 50 cities with proceeds benefiting charitable initiatives.
“For many of us, the world seems very dark,” filmmaker Brett Culp said. “It’s easy to feel that noble heroes like Superman have vanished from the earth. I believe this heroic spirit is most clearly seen in the hearts of the young people who are shaping the future. Our goal with LOOK TO THE SKY is to help renew our faith in tomorrow, for ourselves and our communities.”
Culp’s previous film – LEGENDS OF THE KNIGHT – screened in 110 cities around the world, raising $100,000 for charity. In addition to film directing, Culp delivers keynotes at 30 events a year throughout the U.S. His presentations share inspiration and insights from his experiences as a filmmaker and social entrepreneur.
For LOOK TO THE SKY, Culp and his team filmed in 20 cities, capturing the stories of young people and experts on superhero stories, psychology and literature.
The film was produced through The Rising Heroes Project, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization founded by Culp and his wife, Tricia Culp. The organization creates uplifting and educational films to inspire personal growth, community service and positive engagement in viewers of all ages.
