Director – Chloe Zhao
After suffering a near fatal head injury, young South Dakota cowboy Brady (played by Brady Jandreau, a rodeo star on whose real-life story the narrative is based) is told he must give up the sport. But Brady needs to support his family and the rodeo is his passion as well as his lifeline. Without it he must seek a new identity, exploring what it means to be a man in the heartland.
All The Wild Horses
2017, USA, 90 minutes,
Director – Ivo Marloh
Filmed against the glorious vastness of the Mongolian steppe, All the Wild Horses is a dynamic portrayal of the extreme and often dramatic Mongo Derby horse race – where the international skilled riders pit their wits against semi wild, unbroken Mongolian horses, heat exhaustion, broken bones and packs of wild dogs whilst traversing 1,000km.
