Telling the story of the Compton Cowboys and their fight to keep their dying culture alive.

starting place

Unbeknownst to the world, there has been a stronghold of cowboy culture right in the center of Compton since the last century called, “The Hill”. It has been offering the youth of Compton an alternative to gang life and violence, but after an arson fire, it is now under threat of no longer being available to the people of Compton.

what we did

The story of the Hill, its amazing history, and the thriving cowboy way of life that still springs from it, seemed to be a powerful storytelling platform to bring attention to the cause of rebuilding The Hill. Together with director, Brett Fallentine, who originally brought us the story of the Hill, enso is co-producing a feature length documentary called, “Fire on the Hill” with the intention of using it to gather the resources needed to rebuild the Hill and unite the youth of Compton with the cowboy way.

 

World Value℠ impact

As we finalize the post production of the film we have learned that an equestrian center is to be built in the neighborhood of the Compton cowboys. And so with our mission already partly accomplished, we now look forward to using the film to connect the next generation of Compton youth with an alternative to the gang lifestyle in the horses and cowboy way of the Hill.
