Chowboys - An American Folktale has been screened at a number of film festivals including the Toronto International Film Festival and the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. The short - produced by Astron 6 has most recently screened at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Kenora's Matt Kennedy is one of the Astron 6 crew of 5 and he explains the movie this way: "Chowboys is about three useless cowboys who are stranded in the woods on the coldest night on record. It's Christmas eve and they're desperate for survival and they may or may not resort to cannibalism. In the process, they learn the true meaning of Christmas. It's an absurdist western comedy."
We'll talk with Matt Kennedy about Astron 6 and Chowboys on the Thursday Q Morning Show!
