If you have an hour to kill, I highly recommend you view the documentary film “Wildorado,” situated in the Route 66 town of Wildorado, Texas.
The film premiered on the RFD-TV cable channel and online around Christmas Day. Here’s a description of the movie:
In our latest I Am Angus documentary, “Wildorado”, a forgotten town finds hope in a young cowboy and his class of high school ag students. Facing the odds, they become one of the first student-led cattle companies in the nation. Read more by visiting Angus.org/Wildorado.
The film was even better than I’d hoped, with themes of redemption and determination interweaved throughout.
Save for a few time-element subtitles, “Wildorado” contains no narration except the real-life people involved — a much harder thing to accomplish in documentary filmmaking.
This is top-notch directing and producing.
