Quebec premiere

Okmulgee Invitational

Filmmaker and visual anthropologist Adam James Smith takes his perspective and  camera to the Okmulgee Invitational, one of the largest and oldest rodeo events organized by African-Americans in the United States. During the course of a particularly festive and rich evening, the camera becomes almost omniscient, attempting to capture the ordinary life of this spectacular and singular event.
