Documentary Feature

KIND OF BLUE: TEXAS weaves the stories of a diverse group of Texans — ranchers, politicians, law enforcement officers, activists, lawyers, journalists, business owners, artists, and many more — juxtaposing their personal stories with cinematic vignettes of their communities. These are people who defy the stereotypes of what it means to be Texan, who oppose policies of the Trump Administration. These are people defending human rights, defying land seizures for a wall, protecting the environment, and campaigning for social justice. Our story spans exactly one year.

Directed by Kevin Ford

KEVIN FORD (Director) has more than 20 years of experience with film and television. His recent directorial work includes THE BOMB, an experimental film about nuclear weapons that was shown at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, the 2017 Berlin Film Festival, and the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Ceremonies in Oslo. Kevin co-produced, shot and edited AMERICAN CHAOS, a documentary about the 2016 presidential election distributed theatrically by Sony Pictures Classics. He co-directed THREE DAYS, a documentary starring Jane’s Addiction, which premiered at Slamdance 1999; STONE BARN CASTLE, starring Adrien Brody, which premiered at SXSW in 2015, and BY THE RIVER which was presented by the Austin Film Society in 2017.

AFS’s Works-In-Progress series provides the growing, diverse and vibrant filmmaking community of Austin peer-level critiques of rough or fine cuts of their work. Screenings are free and are followed by moderated audience feedback sessions. Do you have a film you want to submit for Works-In-Progress consideration? Make level members and above can apply here?
