College grad shows off on big screen

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- He's just graduated college and already has his first feature film in theaters.

He's Sioux City's Joe Clarke, a recent University of Iowa graduate, and director of "Kung-Fu Graffiti."

The film was shot almost entirely in Iowa, and, as the title suggests, it's a retro Kung-Fu movie.

Clarke has already shown it off in a few theaters in Iowa City. But this weekend he's bringing it home to show at the Riviera Theatre, which says it's happy to host Joe's hometown premiere.

"I think that this provides an outlet for him that he might not have had in other venues in smaller towns and things like that," says Riviera owner Eric Hilsabeck.

"Without everyone's help and support this wouldn't be possible it's really cool just having everyone come together to help bring this project to life," says Director Joe Clarke.

If you'd like to check out "Kung-Fu Graffiti" it will be playing this Sunday at the Riviera Theater. Tickets are available at the box office. The show starts at 6:30.
