Dusty Roads: Max Walker-Silverman Builds Towards Sophomore Feature

A Love Song(the much traveled and critically acclaimed Sundance 2022 title) filmmaker Max Walker-Silverman is back in his home state of Colorado for round two. Production on his currently untitled project (coined as a rebuilding project) is set with producers Dan Janvey (won Oscar for Nomadland), Paul Mezey and Jesse Hope. Hope and Janvey were producers on his debut film. Here is the logline, we’ll try to find out who will be cast in the lead roles.

After losing the old family ranch to a wildfire, a cowboy, Dusty, winds up in a small FEMA camp in the vast American West. The last of a long line of ranchers, he’s stranded between the legacy of his land and the changes to it. But he begins to reconnect with his young daughter, Callie Rose, and his ex wife, Ruby, and ultimately the neighborhood around him that he never chose–a world of people who all lost their houses like he did. Together they find an unlikely community–and maybe even hope, beauty, and a future in this wild place.
