2020. United States. 78 min.
Director: Sarah Brennan Kolb
GOOD OL GIRL follows three young Texas cowgirls tasked with carrying on their families’ legacies amidst a volatile landscape and industry. The film explores the modern western United States: a place where the male cowboy mythology must answer to a new, honest and provocative, female story. The jarring transition between generations illuminates the weight of heritage and tradition. As the old guard wanes, these three women stand amidst the vast ranchlands of Texas. Who has the authority to claim our traditions when only those who have been overlooked are left to carry them on? Discussion with director Sarah Brennan Kolb and subject Mandy Dauses, moderated by Allison Pugh (UVA) to follow.
Good Ol Girl is part of the Women in Film Series supported by Virginia Commission for the Arts & National Endowment for the Arts
