Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo
After rounding up some rave reviews at the SXSW Film Festival, Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo -- director Bradley Beesley's close-up look at cowgirl convicts who compete in the 2007 Oklahoma State Penitentiary Rodeo -- has been lassoed by HBO Documentary Films. The film is tentatively set for a September broadcast premiere on the Cinemax cable network. I have a Q&A with Beesley in the July issue of Cowboys & Indians Magazine. And I chat with him, along with producer James Payne, in this video clip.
