There will be a Q&A session with the producer, Lubbock native Camille Scioli Chambers, and the director, Ty Roberts at 3 p.m. on Sunday.
Details from the news release:
THE IRON ORCHARD was the name given to the sea of drilling rigs against west Texas skies in search of liquid gold and the name of Tom Pendleton’s 1966 salacious novel that defined generations of Texas to follow. Set in the oil fields of Texas, THE IRON ORCHARD is a vibrant, brutal story of the men who labored, lusted and gambled their money in search of a prize few were lucky enough to find. It is the adventure of violent men set against an uncompromising time. It is also the story of the healing love of one woman for the one man she would not lose.
Shot entirely in Texas, the cast and crew all hail from the Lone Star State. Director Ty Roberts is from Midland, Producer Houston Hill is from the Tyler area, Producer Camille Scioli Chambers is from Lubbock, and actors Lane Garrison, Austin Nichols and Ned Van Zandt also have Texas ties.
