“Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will.” So says Buck Brannaman, a true American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine grueling months a year helping horses with people problems.
BUCK, a richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life “horse-whisperer”, he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Some of the key selling points of the DVD:
Theatrical release on over 300 screens and opened in over 100 markets
Sundance Film Festival 2011 Audience Award for Best Documentary,
Audience Award Full Frame Documentary Festival,
Official Selection South By Southwest Film Festival
In addition, Buck appeared on several nationally syndicated television talk shows to promote the movie, including:
Last Call with Carson Daly
The Late Show With David Letterman
CBS Sunday Morning
Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses – and people – with his understanding, compassion and respect. In this film, the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero, BUCK is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.
