By Sameer Rao Sep 18, 2018

On Saturday (September 22), "Fire on the Hill”—a documentary about South Central’s Black cowboy legacy—will premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Shadow and Act posted the trailer for the film yesterday (September 17).


rntThe doc is named after Hill Stable, which Shadow and Act describes as the historically Black and Latinx area’s “last public horse stable." It follows three Black cowboys as they fight to protect its legacy and roster of rodeo-ready competitive cowboys after a 2012 fire pushed the city to evacuate the stable grounds.
