About The Film
Atlantic City is a 15min short Super 16mm narrative film shot in and around Austin and San Antonio.
Pony and Junior are two south Texas drifters - brothers in spirit, if not blood. Pony's last connection to his estranged mother is a postcard she sent twenty years ago from Atlantic City. When Junior refuses to help find his mother, Pony resorts to taking a job from a local thug to raise the money to search for her himself. It's here that he meets a fifteen-year old runaway that he tries to help.
