After years in the making and premieres in Asia, Europe and North America, This Land Films is pleased to present Far Western with the Tulsa American Film Festival and Circle Cinema. “The subjects’ intense, earnest love for country and bluegrass (music) radiates through the screen; they treat the music with an adoring reverence that borders on genuine awe,” Indyweek praised following the North American premiere.
