Storyline

In 1958, Two young men realized they were settling into lives they hadn't expected to be in. When Bill Tynan decided he'd take a walk to Mexico City to figure out what could be next, Bill Bates asked to come along. With two hundred dollars, a few belongings and Tynan's camera, they headed off, on foot. 2300 miles and 12 pairs of shoes later, they found the kindness of the Mexican people, the beauty of the land and a life changing experience. Bill "Red Dog" Tynan documented their trip with his photos, photos that have held up over the last 56 years to guide this story. Written by Xochi Blymyer

A documentary by a fantastic Producer/Director Xochi Blymer!
6 July 2016 | by cinema39See all my reviews

A documentary of two men, Red Dog and Bates who walked from Los Angeles to Mexico City and their adventures along the way! the documentary is long in the making. As most films have their beginning in reality so does Red Dog and Bates! Xochi Blymyer has written this story and taken several years to bring it to fruition. A small crew banded together to enter Mexico and follow the trail of Red Dog and Bates as they walked through Mexico. For those of us that make a living in this business called show business know it is not easy to get people to believe in your story without paying big money for crews, lodging, props, food, travel etc.Because we believe in Xochi and the fact that she has proved herself over years of hard work and devotion to her craft she was able to spend a month following the trail of Red dog and Bates. She was able to put her crew together and as small as they were they stuck through the grueling shoot until the end. I can hardly wait to see the finished product!
