More than 200 Swiss settlers - farmers, winegrowers and adventurers from good families - set out to seek the dazzling wealth they had been promised. West of the Pecos is a study of the social conditions that caused people to leave everything behind and of the business interests that steered their way. "West of the Pecos is a major work, solid in its historical references, poignant in its subject matter, breathing the wide open space with compassion. It is technically superb and reveals this young filmmaker as one of our best." Bertil Galland, Le Nouveau Quotidien
