A psychological drama set in the Old West; “Upon the Awful Tree”combines suspense and dark humor with the classic elements of Spaghetti Westerns. Imagery coupled with an award-winning orchestral score propels the drama without any use of dialogue creating an artful and authentic indie Western. University of Texas at San Antonio classical guitar professor Matthew Dunne composed the elaborate orchestra soundtrack featuring local instrumental talent, winning the San Antonio Artist Foundation Prize for Composition for his efforts. “It is a rare and daring undertaking to have an independent film with music of this caliber,” says Diek, writer and director of "Upon the Awful Tree."
