Cowboys and Dissidents, a short film produced in Belfast earlier this year, will be making its world premiere at the Rhode Island International Film Festival on Friday, August 10th.
Directed and written by Will Maloney, Cowboys and Dissidents is produced by Maloney’s Freewill Productions in association with Larry Cowan and Lamb Films.
Starring Conor MacNeill and Lewis Malseed, Cowboys and Dissidents tells the story of a disillusioned young man tasked to murder a police officer in retaliation for the death of his own father. Exploring the changing face of political violence, Cowboys and Dissidents begs to ask what purpose, if any, it serves today.
