The sixth annual Slamdance Film Festival has selected “South of Heaven, West of Hell,” Dwight Yoakam’s directorial debut, as its closing night film.
Pic, making its world premiere, will screen on Jan. 28 at the Treasure Mountain Inn in Park City, Utah.
The film stars Yoakam, who plays a bachelor in the desolate Tucson territory of the early 1900s. Yoakam co-wrote the script with Stan Bertheaud from a story by Yoakam, Dennis Hacken and Otto Felix.
Pic’s producers are Gray Frederickson and Darris Hatch.
The winner of two Grammy Awards, Yoakam acted in “Sling Blade,” “The Newton Boys,” “Red Rock West,” “Roswell” and “The Minus Man.”
