Transpecos Opens Marfa Film Festival

Host Travis Lux (far left) with Greg Kwedar, Gabriel Luna, and Clint Bentley

On this edition of West Texas Talk, host Travis Lux sits down with three of the folks behind Transpecos -- a new film about three Border Patrol agents whose slow day on the job takes a dramatic turn when a cartel drug runner passes through their makeshift checkpoint.

Clint Bentley (co-writer and producer), Greg Kwedar (co-writer and director), and Gabriel Luna (lead actor) talk about West Texas, the research behind the film, and its relevance to current social and political conversations.
