REEL NEW MEXICO
May 9, 7 p.m. at La Tienda
Sundance Audience Award winner
On Thursday, May 9, Reel New Mexico is proud to present “Buck,” a stunning documentary about a horse trainer best described as a real life horse whisperer.
The New York Times called it “mesmerizing viewing [that] holds your attention and heart.” Salon termed it “impossible to resist.” The Los Angeles Times hailed it as “an exceptional slice of Americana [that] transports us to a better world. At the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, “Buck” won the Audience Choice award.
This richly textured and visually stunning documentary follows master horseman Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. He eschews the violence of his upbringing, teaching people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Filmed throughout the West, “Buck” is a truly American story of a man who dramatically transforms horses – and people – with understanding , compassion and respect. You don’t need to know horses to love this beautiful, haunting tale.
John Parks, of Trinity Ranch just south of Eldorado, has known and worked with Buck for more than two decades and counts him as a close friend. Immediately following the screening, he will answer audience questions about Buck the man and about his amazing techniques.
Reel New Mexico presents films with a New Mexico connection on the second Thursday of each month, at 7 p.m. in The Performance Space in La Tienda Center, off Avenida Vista Grande at 285. For a truly memorable evening, don’t miss “Buck” on May 9. A contribution of five dollars is suggested at the door. Directions to the venue are at http://www.reelnewmexico.com

Following in the mystical tradition of “Rumi Returning,” “Globalized Soul: Stories from the Tipping Point to a New World” presents a mystic tour of humanity’s longing for love and peace. It features the spiritual wisdom of the Dalai Lama and sacred activists such as Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bukhari. A lavish visual odyssey, it was filmed in India, Turkey, Morocco, Israel, Mexico, the U.S. and the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne, Australia and set to the music of Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar.
Arun Ghandi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, pronounced the film “a sensitively made film on peace [that] leaves you with a positive feeling that peace is possible if we know how to build it.”
