Josh Kelly Premiere's "The Wake Up Call"

On June 13, 2013 Josh Kelly premiered his documentary "The Wake Up Call" at The 20th Century Theater in Cincinnati, OH. This documentary showcases the talent and culture that we have in Cincinnati, OH. These four men have grown to be nationally recognized hailing from Cincinnati. In a place that some say is 20 years behind, there are a lot of positive moves being made in this city. Director Josh Kelly made this film in hopes to shed some positive light on a city that usually comes in under the radar and along with that, bring people together. "I hope this film inspires you as much as it inspired me. As individuals, we can accomplish whatever we dream and I'm using these four men as an example of that. If we come together we can be recognized as any other booming city out there!" - Josh Kelly
