David Pomes sports jeans, a T-shirt and three days’ worth of stubble on his chin. Sitting at the Angelika Film Center & Cafe in Dallas on Aug. 18 after driving up from Houston, he doesn’t look much like the Cowles & Thompson associate he used to be. Now, Pomes looks more like the independent filmmaker he is.

During the last week of August, “Cook County,” a full-length feature film written and directed by Pomes, will be showing in Dallas and Houston. Earlier this year, the 93-minute movie received an audience award at South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin and a jury award at the AFI Dallas International Film Festival, among honors at other festivals.
