The Horse Whisperer may be the stuff of Hollywood legend but the cowboy who inspired the novel and film is very real. Buck Brannaman—master horseman, raconteur and philosopher—is a no-excuses cowboy who travels the world sharing a hard-won wisdom that’s often more about human relationships than about horses. Buck, a richly textured and visually stunning feature documentary, follows Brannaman from a severely abusive and painful childhood to his inspiring work as a teacher. Buck is often away from his family and travels alone in his horse trailer from clinic to sold-out clinic all across the country, dealing with fractious horses and, frequently, fractious humans. As Buck says, “Often, instead of helping people with horse problems, I’m helping horses with people problems.” Winner of an Audience Award at Sundance 2011.
