BUCK The Movie

June 10, 2011
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Inviting Prospect Sierra Faculty and Staff, TEDxGoldenGate presenters, speakers, and volunteers!
See Buck, a movie that can change the world! This Sundance Film Festival 2011 Documentary award winning movie features Buck Brannaman, the inspiration behind Robert Redford's 1998 movie, The Horse Whisperer.
For this true cowboy, horses are a
mirror of the human soul. Reared by an abusive father, Buck eschews
violence. By teaching people to communicate with horses through
instinct, not punishment, he frees the spirit of the horse and its human
comrade. Crisscrossing the world with Zenlike wisdom, Buck promulgates
grace in the bond between man and horse. The animal-human relationship
becomes a perfect metaphor for meeting the challenges of daily life,
whether they consist of raising kids, running a business, or finding
your flow with a dance partner.
What is extraordinary about Buck Brannaman, the man, leaps off the
screen in this strikingly cinematic film by first-time director Cindy
Meehl. Part guru, part psychologist, the adult Buck, who was once a
beaten kid, has now beaten the odds. Buck Brannaman could transform your
troubled horse. “Buck” the movie may transform your soul. [Description
