Selected for the 2016 Sundance Screenwriters and Directors Labs (here is a video interview), and recipient of the San Francisco Film Society/Kenneth Rainin Foundation Grant and Time Warner Fellowship, Annie Silverstein won the jury award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival–Cinéfondation for Skunk before moving into her feature debut, Bull. Filming took place sometime in 2018 in Texas.
Gist: Co-written by Silverstein and Johnny McAllister, in a near-abandoned subdivision west of Houston, a wayward teen runs headlong into her equally willful and unforgiving neighbor, an aging bullfighter who’s seen his best days in the arena; it’s a collision that will change them both.
Production Co./Producers: Monique Walton, Heather Rae (Once Upon a River), Ryan Zacarias (The Mountain), Bert Marcus (Ophelia).
