A powerful and critically-acclaimed documentary, BUCK is a true American cowboy whose extraordinary life inspired the theatrical film, “The Horse Whisperer.” Recipient of numerous awards such as — Audience Award Sundance Film Festival 2011, Best Documentary CrossRoads Film Festival 2011 and Audience Award FULL FRAME Documentary Film Festival, BUCK will be released on DVD October 4 from IFC Films and MPI Media Group.

BUCK is a richly textured and visually stunning film that follows Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life “horse whisperer,” he teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses — and people with his understanding, compassion and respect. A truly American story about an unsung hero, BUCK is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.
 
Film director and executive producer, Cindy Meehl, was inspired to make this film to order to introduce this charismatic cowboy to the general public and not just “horse people.” She attended one of Buck’s horse clinics in 2003 and was in awe of this compelling individual whose compassion and talent for working with horses went beyond the round pen and arena. Meehl founded Cedar Creek Productions in 2008 in order to make this film.
