The winner of the best made in Mississippi feature film at the 2021 Oxford Film Festival, Director Travis Mills is bringing another made in Mississippi film, The Wilderness Road, to Oxford.
The Wilderness Road tells the incredible true story of the infamous bandits of the Natchez Trace. Select cast and filmmakers will be there to meet the audience and do a Q&A after the screening.
The Wilderness Road tells the story of the most notorious land pirates who stalked the southeast during the turn of the 19th century. Samuel Mason (Creek Wilson), a Revolutionary War hero, turns to a life of crime and forms a dangerous gang of bandits. Big Harpe (Daulton Brewer) and Little Harpe (Travis Mills), considered by some to be America’s first serial killers, wreak havoc through the region as they kill without mercy. Soon, these three outlaws will meet along the wilderness road.
DVDS of the film will not be available at this showing. They will be available at a later date.
The epic historical adventure will play Tuesday, September 28 at Malco Oxford Commons. The showing begins at 7 pm. Tickets are only $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
