Desert Door hosted the premiere of First to Rise at the Carpenter Hotel on November 1. Created by Ocotillo Films, the short film is about fifth-generation rancher Alyssa Martinez Hind, who breaks the mold of the stereotypical cowboy. During the screening, her family, as well as the Austin community, gathered to hear her story while sharing ranch waters and warm sotol cider.
