If you're anything like me, you've always wanted a slingshot. Preferably a wooden one, like from Zelda. Your mom maybe bought you one of those wrist-bracing-molded-plastic ones and they were hard to use and hurt your forearm and didn't make you look nearly as badass as you thought.
Well, now you can have one, free of charge, and it doesn't hurt and it DOES look badass! And it's a movie! And it's my good friend Davey's senior thesis.

(And it's not really a slingshot. April Fools.)

A Slingshot Out of the Valley is a beautifully produced documentary about local art in our very own Salt Lake City. It features three specific (and fantastic) artists, but its scope is far broader; it speaks to the way art is functioning in Salt Lake in this 21st Century, and it's spot-on. 
Also, if you like this, make sure to check out another Dada Factory documentary, Afterimage: The Art of 337. It's a full-length film all about the 337 project that's WAY more than worth the 15 dollars.
