The purpose of the film series is to encourage psychoanalytic dialogue with respect to creativity and movies. 

This is a real-life Western film, created by Chinese-American writer/director Chloe Zhao as part two of a planned trilogy centered on the Pine Ridge Lakota reservation of South Dakota.  Part one was the award-winning “Songs My Brothers Taught Me”.  This story is based on the true story of Brady Jandreau, a Lakota rodeo cowboy who suffers a serious head injury in a bronc-riding accident.  Brady, his father and his sister play themselves in the film.  Told that another ride could be fatal for him, he is faced with the loss of his identity, his masculinity, and indeed his cultural identity.  Chloe Zhao’s film compassionately and subtly portrays the human drive to persevere and to prevail , illustrating those struggles in the context of the contemporary Lakota culture.  Beautifully photographed by Joshua James Richard.
