About the director
Ryan Oligmueller is a Colorado-based filmmaker who is currently attaining his BFA in Film Production from the University of Colorado Boulder.
The films that inspire Ryan the most are the works of Charlie Chaplin, "Whiplash", and "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?"
Statement from Ryan:
Thank you for viewing my latest film, "Tristo" - which chronicles the life of my dear friend, Tristan Oliver. This film has been an eye-opening one. Not only have I learned more about the filmmaking process itself, but I have learned more about Tristan and the America he and so many others live in. I hope this film sparks discussion, but specifically, I hope you realize how special Tristan Oliver is as a person.
