A portrait of modern-day cowboys over a year.

Shot on eight ranches in seven states in the American West, Bud Force and John Langmore’s thoughtful film details the work of cowboys today over the four seasons. While some of the interviewees, particularly the older ones, relate stories of the past, and some evocative photography captures cowboys in some indeterminate prior decades, the film is very much rooted in the reality of the profession in the present, exploring the sacrifice and hard work involved. More of a portrait of a profession rather than of individuals, the project captures an essential way of life that is still hanging on despite feeling somewhat out of its time.
