Texas Focus: Hellion

Join the Bullock Museum for a screening and conversation about Hellion as part of the Bullock's Texas Focus film series.

Motocross and heavy metal obsessed thirteen-year-old Jacob's increasing delinquent behavior forces Child Protective Services to place his little brother, Wes, with his aunt. Jacob and his emotionally absent father, Hollis, must finally take responsibility for their actions, and for each other, to bring Wes home.

Set in southeast Texas, the film was shot in Beaumont and Groves, Texas. It won the Narrative Feature Grand Jury Prize at the Dallas International Film Festival, the Gamechanger Emergent Woman Director Award at the SXSW Film Festival and the Grand Jury Narrative Feature award at the DeadCENTER Film Festival and was nominated for other awards as well.
