Film Screening: Fire on the Hill

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Join us on Saturday, October 12th at 7:00 p.m. for a screening of the award-winning western-documentary "Fire on the Hill." Five miles south of downtown Los Angeles is a place that was, until recent years, known as the murder capital of the world. For most, South Central LA is synonymous with gang violence, drug trafficking, and high amounts of crime. Yet for much of the twentieth century South Central LA was an agricultural boomtown. Since the city’s establishment, Compton and the surrounding neighborhoods have always had a culture of Black Cowboys. Once common to the dusty dirt roads, this culture has all but disappeared now in a wash of land-hungry developers, apathetic politicians, and relentless gang activity. Fire on the Hill tells the story of one of the last strongholds that the Cowboys have; a horse stable known as the Hill that was mysteriously set on fire in 2012. This is the story of three of those Cowboys and their fight to live out their vision of the West.
