Center of the American West film screening: 'Losing the West'

The Center of the American West is proud to host a screening of Losing the West, a documentary about small ranching and farming, exemplified by the story of Howard Linscotta, a lifelong Colorado cowboy. With sweeping shots of the Colorado Rockies, the film explores whether cherished Western traditions and this fiercely independent lifestyle can survive as they collide with inevitable population growth in the West and its dwindling natural resources.

Losing the West will be screened April 7, at 7:30 p.m. in Muenzinger Auditorium A
