Fire on the Hill

79 mins


Colorado Premiere
On the infamous streets of Compton, California, you’ll find an unexpected sight: a parade of urban cowboys — boots, chaps, hats and all. These city riders find joy and purpose amid the horses of the Hill: the last public stable in South Central L.A. Fire on the Hill is a thoughtful profile of three Compton cowboys: Ghuan, who fights to rebuild the Hill and preserve its unique culture in the wake of a mysterious fire; Calvin, who struggles to balance family responsibilities and the cowboy lifestyle; and Chris, who is on a quest to become a bull-riding rodeo champion. A tale of both hope and redemption, this documentary offers proof that perseverance can be found in the unlikeliest of places.
