About the Project
Who isn’t fascinated by the “Old West?”
I grew up loving John Ford and John Wayne movies, so it was inevitable that one day I would begin filming a series about the American Cowboy. When I heard about the Hage family, I knew that theirs was a compelling story, a part of life and traditions on our Western rangelands that may soon be gone.
“Cowboy Country” (working title) is a full-length documentary film about an American ranching family and their struggle to keep their business and way of life alive through the generations.
