state of rodeo

a film by Scott Barnett

USA, 57 mins.


Take a journey through the backroads and byways of the state of Florida, where the first cowboys began the tradition of cattle ranching and rodeos. This bronco-busting film follows the stories of the people who keep the rodeo tradition alive and explores the 500 year history that binds generations of Floridians from the first Spanish explorers, to the Native American cowkeepers, pioneer Cracker families an even today's urban cowboys. You don’t need to be a rodeo fan or even a horse lover to enjoy this film, which rocks with true rip-roaring action and a whole bunch of sincere, fun loving, big-hearted humans.
