Three Black Cowboys in South Central share their stories following a mysterious fire that burnt down the community’s stables, leaving the fate of the culture in question.
About The Film

In an area known to many as synonymous with crime, Compton and the surrounding neighborhoods have also been the longtime home of a unique subculture: Black cowboys. Located in South Central, The Hill is the last horse stable of its kind, turning generations of inner-city youth into rodeo champions, and now finds itself under threat. When a mysterious fire forces the closure of the Hill Stable, the very culture of Black cowboys is in peril.

First time feature director Brett Fallentine deftly draws out the contradictions between public perception and the reality of a community as he follows cowboys Guan, Chris and Calvin. Their stories of perseverance paint the full picture of the Hill Stable, shine a new light on South Central, and explore what it truly means to be a cowboy.
