Portrait of a Cowboy
Directed by Devon Wycoff. Produced by Devon Wycoff, Andrew Yang, and Amanda Gostomski.

Alex returns home for the first time since her father's death in order to prepare her family’s farm to be sold at auction. After unearthing a letter she never received, Alex is able to move through her anger and find peace with the memory of her father. But when Alex mistakenly sells an important item in the estate sale, another obstacle is placed in the path of healing.

Strange Way of Life
Directed by Pedro Almodovar. Produced by Agustín Almodóvar, Esther García, and Anthony Vaccarello

A man rides a horse across the desert, coming to visit Sheriff Jake (Ethan Hawke). Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva (Pedro Pascal), the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship…

Directed by Jake Ames. Produced by Jake Marston, Jake Ames, and Zach Robinson.

A young vagabond’s idea of freedom is threatened after they're caught trespassing on an old farmer’s land.
