In 2009, Cannon set a record for earnings and won the world championship in Houston after two promising seasons were cut short by injuries.The French director will also screen a section of a film, Cowboy Solitude, that also stars Cannon and is a combination of documentary and fiction. It will be shown following Ballad of a Cowboy. Cannon will be on hand to answer questions.
