I went to the USA to explore and document what drives the people who, In spite of criticism, dedicate their life to a sport that’s deemed controversial for our current modern society.
In northern San Diego County, California I met with Junior Saenz, retired ex-professional bull rider who spends his days trying to keep the sport alive by training his son Boogie to follow in his footsteps.
It became an inside look into a father's passion for a sport that’s deemed too risky and violent for the current modern American society.
The film traveled to film festivals in Kenya and the United Kingdom.
