There are plenty of cowboy stories at this year's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, but for a more cinematic take, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is offering up three short cowboy films from Houston producer and filmmaker Ramzy Telley. First is Ty Murray: King of the Cowboys, which follows Murray considered to be the world's best rodeo cowboy as he attempts to win his seventh, world-record-breaking title of "World Champion All Around Cowboy." Next up is the Oscar-nominated The Wildest Show in the South: The Angola Prison Rodeo, a film chronicling the bizarre and dangerous rodeo at Angola State Penitentiary in Louisiana. And finally,Death in Vegasdepicts the punishment rodeo cowboys endure as they ride the bucking bulls and horses at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
