Documentary being filmed in Oklahoma’s Panhandle

Oklahoman Published: May 2, 2014

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Panhandle is one of the most remote areas of the Sooner State, but a new documentary film currently in production may shed some light on issues residents are facing.

“Loneman’s Land” follows a family as it struggles to keep the ranching life alive in the face of rising costs. The film is based in Kenton, the westernmost town in Oklahoma. Kenton has about 20 people.

The website for “Loneman’s Land” was unveiled Friday along with a short teaser.

Filmmaker Ezra Gentle says filming should wrap this month. He says editing should be completed in June and then it will be submitted to film festivals. Gentle says the ultimate goal is to sell the film and have as many people learn about ranch life as possible.
