Sisters filmmaker to debut in Texas festival

“The Outside Circle: A Film of the Modern West” will have its world premier in “the best little documentary film festival in Texas” March 23-27.

Thin Line Fest is in its 15th year in Denton, Texas.

The Outside Circle depicts western artist Len Babb, a fifth-generation rancher, and a Paiute-Shoshone rodeo champion, all of whom are determined to preserve their heritage, traditions, and livelihoods. The Outside Circle explores the common thread in their modest adherence to the values of faith, family, friends, and community.

Writer Craig Rullman makes his directorial debut with the film.

According to Rullman, the festival slot is a major step in getting wide distribution for the documentary, which was filmed in Paisley, Oregon, and in northern Nevada. Sam Pyke of Hill Shadow Pictures in Sisters is cinematographer on the film. Sisters filmmaker Cody Rheault also contributed to the film.
