It premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival and went on to play at other festivals including the Green Bay Film Festival where it won Best Screenplay and was nominated for Best Cinematography. It has since screened in New York and Los Angeles, raising awareness and funds for child abuse prevention organizations.
Profits from this screening will go to benefit The Community Safety Network of Jackson. Parental discretion is advised.
Mahjong and the West is about a city girl named Maddy who returns to Wyoming to bury her mother and reunites with her childhood best friend with whom she shares a violent, troubled past. Kate, a hard-living rodeo princess who runs from her demons, takes Maddy with her on a kamikaze course of booze, thrills and comforts with two local bull riders. But both soon realize that their reunion will force them to confront their shared trauma and either make peace with it or die trying.
A Q&A with writer/producer/actress Alyssa Carpenter, executive producer Karissa Tuthill of Après Visuals, and other cast and crew will follow.
