Told in the cinematic tradition of classic westerns, “COWBOYS - A Documentary Portrait” is a feature-length film that gives viewers the opportunity to ride alongside modern working cowboys on some of America's largest and most remote cattle ranches. The movie documents the lives of the men and women working on these "big outfit" ranches - some of which are over one million acres - and still require full crews of horseback mounted workers to tend large herds of cattle. My guest on this episode of Ranchcast is none other than Bud Force, co-director and cinematographer of this feature length film. Bud along with his co-director John Langmore, spent two years filming on 8 of the largest ranches in the country. The result is story is steeped in authenticity that explores the rewards and hardships of a celebrated but misunderstood way of life.
Bud and I discuss the challenges of filming, the people and friendships made along the way, and the excitement to see it come to its world premiere in hometown Austin Texas. “COWBOYS - A Documentary Portrait” has its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival on October 25, 2019 at the Paramount Theatre.
