Details

Documentary which looks at the life of Buck Brannaman, a horse trainer whose skill in his field inspired the popular book and film, The Horse Whisperer.

"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 abuse-marred childhood to his success as a communicator with horses. A real-life "horse-whisperer", he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to bond with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck displays seemingly uncanny abilities as he dramatically transforms horses - and people - with his understanding, compassion and respect, the animal-human relationship here becoming a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. Buck is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.

Winner of the Audience award at the Sundance Film Festival.
