Gunfight at Dry River with Joshua Dickinson
The Old West has fought over many things. Gold mines, land property, railroads, and even over water sources. The film Gunfight at Dry River is a traditional western with gunfights in a town struggling to survive after the well dried up.
Here’s the official synopsis:
The closing years of the nineteenth century Old West. Gunfight at Dry River tells the story of a Mexican border town ravaged by severe drought, with the only water source controlled by a family of American renegades on the trailer for a legend of last gold.

The film stars Charlie Creed-Miles (The Fifth Element, Harry Brown), Michael Moriarty (Courage Under Fire, Law & Order), Ann Mitchell (The Deep Blue Sea, Widows), Joshua Dickinson, and Isabella Walker. Daniel Simpson directed the movie from the screenplay written by Fe Valen.
