5th STXIFF Official Selection presents "Finding Home in Boomtown" from the Texas Feature Film Competition

'Finding Home in Boomtown' is a verite documentary about Briana & John-Mark Echols’ dream to build a tiny house community for the homeless of Midland - a West Texas oil town that is the nation’s 2nd wealthiest city. Filmed over a period of 2 years, our story starts as the Echols sell their newly built, custom home & most of their possessions, move into an RV & commit their lives to helping the homeless. As the story continues, the contrasting relationships (husband/wife, parents/children, affluent/homeless, culture/convictions) create the greatest tensions throughout.
