Clay Hassler is directing the film.
Part memoir. Part ghost story. Buffalo is a portrait of 88 year old Duane West, the former county attorney and chief prosecutor in the Clutter family murder case, made famous by Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. Told through story and song and set in the heart of Kansas nearly 60 years after the murder, Duane brings us into his private, inner world -- a cyclone of memory, trauma, and regret.
