The Little Rock Film Festival and Argenta Arts Foundation are presenting a screening of the documentary feature film, Just Like Us, April 26 at 7p.m. at the Argenta Community Theater as part of the Argenta Film Series. Arkansas native and film producer, Taylor Feltner, will be in attendance and will be available for question and answer after the screening.

The documentary features Egyptian-American comedian Ahmed Ahmed along with a host of critically acclaimed international stand-up comedians.

It documents their attempts to correct cultural misconceptions about Middle Eastern cultures through contemporary stand-up comedy. Variety Magazine described the film as “funny [and] thoughtful,” and The Hollywood Reporter said it was “fast, funny and light on its feet.” Feltner, and Arkansas native, holds a B.F.A. from the Florida State University College of Motion Picture, Television and Recording Arts.

He began his work in Los Angeles for the documentary film company Allentown Productions under Emmy- and Oscar-winning filmmaker James Moll.

The film showed at 26 national and international film festivals including the Tribeca Film Festival. It won Best Documentary Feature at Tallahassee Film Festival and Tallgrass International Film Festival and won the Audience Award at North Country Film Festival and Tallgrass International Film Festival.

Tickets may be purchased at or tickets may be purchased the day of the performance at the box office for $8 each.
