At its open, you’ll instantly be impressed by Cowboys. From one breathtaking shot to the next, we’re given an exclusive window into everyday life on the ranch. Through thoughtfully framed interviews, we get to know the hard working folks that are keeping the cowboy spirit alive. But don’t let this film’s stunning aesthetic beauty distract you from its core. Beyond the luscious landscape shots and spot-on soundtrack, there’s a deeper story told. With warm drawls, windblown faces, and weathered hands, the subjects of this film represent a lasting legacy. Cowboys gives you a sense of the tradition and craft that is intertwined with this way of life, made with painstaking respect and admiration for the profession.
“Cowboying is not just what you do, it’s who you are.”
Different iterations of this expression are peppered throughout the film, and by its close, you’ll know it’s undeniably true.
