Bullock Texas State History Museum presents Reel Women in Film: The Rider
The Bullock Museum will present a screening and conversation about Chloé Zhao's The Rider.
After suffering a near fatal head injury, a young cowboy undertakes a search for new identity and what it means to be a man in the heartland of America. After a tragic riding accident, young cowboy Brady (Brady Jandreau), once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is warned that his competition days are over. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.
The program is shown in conjunction with "Rodeo! The Exhibition" and includes a film screening and Q&A.
