From Sundance to Rockport

“Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will.” - Buck Brannaman.

"Buck" directed by Cindy Meehl

“Buck” is a documentary film directed by Cindy Meehl.    Meehl is an equestrian and artist who attended Brannaman’s classes for several years on how to relate to  horses and was inspired to make a film about this real life horse whisperer.  She states that his lessons for horses really translate to lessons for people.  The film won an award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.  The win was described this way, “The Audience Award: Documentary was presented to Buck, directed by Cindy Meehl, for her story about the power of non-violence and master horse trainer Buck Brannaman, who uses principles of respect and trust to tame horses and inspire their human counterparts.”

Next week it will be one of the featured films in the 2011  Rockport Film Festival which will be November 3 - 5.  The website describes it as “International in Scope, Local in Flavor.”   A trailer for “Buck” can be viewed at the website.  Maybe you will bump into Robert Redford there…well, maybe not!

If you miss this Texas film festival,  you might want to make plans to attend the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah January 19- 29.  You will surely see Robert there!   Here is the link to all the details.  http://www.sundance.org/festival/
