Putting the West back in the Western: First cowboy film made entirely in Arizona debuts

PHOENIX – Prescott residents will have the opportunity to view the first full-length Western film shot entirely in Arizona, as it makes its debuts there Saturday night.

The film, “Copper Wind,” also features an all-Arizona cast, according to a press release.

Cave Creek resident Chaz Lee wrote and directed the supernatural-laced Western.

The project was announced at the Phoenix Film Festival in 2012, during the state’s centennial celebrations, and some recognizable Arizonans took part in the production, including KTAR’s own Pat McMahon.

“Copper Wind,” premiered in downtown Phoenix’s Herberger Theatre in early October.

The independent film will debut in Prescott’s Elk Theatre and Performing Arts Center at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $20.
