Rural Population Decline

The 2010 U.S. Census figures show the rural population in the country is at its lowest ever -- 16%.  That compares to 72% one hundred years ago.

Tales from Dell City, Texas is about many things.  One of them is the trajectory of rural America.  The film lets us meet a group of people who are committed to living in their own tiny, isolated town despite the inexorable changes happening around them.  We get to know these people, understand them, and feel the poignancy of the shared knowledge that in the future their way of life will probably no longer exist.
