Posted by on Aug 4, 2015 in Top News, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Have You Ever Wondered Why A Homeless Person Is Homeless?

Have you ever seen a homeless person and wonder how they become homeless? What is the story behind this situation? WellSterlin Harjo, a Tulsa director, filmmaker and writer of films shot in Oklahoma has done just that. 

Harjo is a member of the Seminole and Muscogee nations, and had noticed the commonness of Native Americans that had actually built a community of homeless, becoming somewhat like family.
So he set out to create a story on this subject an d his 3rd feature film, “Mekko,” is soon to premier at the historic Circle Cinema. He shot this fictional film mostly Tulsa’s streets.

“Mekko” is thriller that tells the story about the attempt of an ex-con’s to re-enter society and live among the homeless Native Americans of Tulsa. However, Harjo would find more reality for this story than he thought.

For 16 filming days, Harjo and his crew were working from the downtown Coney Island to the underpass of the 21st Streetbridge and on to Greenwood. The actors worked close with several homeless extras that were discovered in a downtown soup kitchen. They would actually become supporting actors instead of extras for the film. 

Tickets to see “Mekko” (pronounced mee-ko) are $10 for members of Circle Cinema and $20 for non-members. Harjo credits Circle Cinema for allowing such films to be displayed that would not have been shown elsewhere. 

Harjo is back living in the neighborhood as a resident now and has established Fire Thief, his studio where he works with Jeremy Charles, a photographer creating commercials. Harjo also directs video projects that include the monthly TV news magazine for the Cherokee Nation and “Osiyo, Voices of the Cherokee People”.

” I was packing my bags, and suddenly I just wanted to end it. I had a way, and it was right there in front of me. And I was like, I need to decide whether I love myself as much as I love the idea of death.”

Delevigne also confirmed her relationship with musician Annie Clark, and opened up about strugles she haid with her sexuality while growing up.

5. Kendall Jenner Gets the Worlds Smallest Tattoo

Kendall Jenner got inked. The reality star and model got a dot on her middle finger, which can barely be called a tattoo. Cause that thing is so tiny, it just can’t be identified as one. Kendall shared a picture of herself allong with friends Hailey Baldwin, Joe Termini and Harry Hudson, showing off the new tatoo, and writing “late night, too cool.” We can’t come up with the meaning behind her tattoo, but we wonder what Kim has to say about her little sister’s act, since we know Kim is not a fan of tattoes and we remember her preaching that you shouldn’t put a bumper sticker on a Bentley. What do you think about Kendall’s new tattoo? Love or loathe it?
