Chris “Sandman” Sand is a 39-year-old cowboy from North Dakota. But when it comes to music, he doesn’t dig country tunes; he creates rap music. The documentary Roll Out, Cowboy follows Sand and his friends on tour across the Midwest. The film kicks off its 10-day run at Facets Cinematheque in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood Friday, July 22. Jonathan Miller brought Eight Forty-Eight a review.

To see the Sandman off the screen in and in the flesh, head to Facets Cinematheque this weekend. He and director Elizabeth Lawrence will be there for post-screening Q & A sessions.
