Film Depicts the Life of Cowboy Buck Brannaman
Ocala, FL (May 23, 2011) – The new documentary “BUCK,” based on the true story of cowboy Buck Brannaman, depicts the life and times of the genuine horse whisperer. Chester Weber, the eight-time USEF National Four-In-Hand Combined Driving Champion, has joined forces with Juliet Weber Reid, Jazz Johnson Merton and Georgina Bloomberg to support the movie, which is sure to enthrall horse lovers of all kinds.
Presented by REACT to FILM, the screening will take place Monday, June 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the SoHo House in New York. “‘BUCK’ has already won numerous film festival awards and it is an uplifting documentary,” Weber said. “The real life Buck will be on hand at the screening, along with the film’s director. They will do a question and answer segment after the film.”
Dennis and Coralie Paul founded REACT to FILM, a nonprofit organization that leverages documentary filmmaking to activate young people on social issues. The film follows the life of Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life horse whisperer, Brannaman eschews the violence of his youth to teach people how to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment.
