Q&A with co-director David Wilson following the screenings on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week.
David Wilson, a founder of Ragtag and True/False, and AJ Schnack, a Mizzou graduate and True/False alum, co-direct this fascinating, tender documentary portrait of Branson, Missouri. Located in the Ozarks, Branson hosts more than 7.5 million tourists a year, but its population barely numbers 10,500. As they follow four different families over the course of five years, Wilson and Schnack offer a nuanced look at the city as its residents grapple with economic uncertainty and social change.
"Elegant. The filmmakers' biographical ties to the region, though never explicitly spelled out, show through in a deep-rooted mood of chivalry, the kind of bittersweet, affectionate tone one associates with home." (Leah Churner, Reverse Shot)
