Wild Texas Short Films

IMG_2055

Last night, I arrived at Stanley’s Farmhouse in Austin at sunset.  My mission was to enjoy a few short films being screened by Ben Masters.  The sun lit up the clouds in bright orange just over the trees of the farm.  I found the pavilion and pizza restaurant where the screening was taking place, and took a few photos before enjoying the films.  The most publicized film was called Pronghorn Revival, and was about relocating Pronghorns to ranches near Marfa Texas.  My favorite film of the night was called A Backcountry Recovery, and was a story about how horses and a 1,000 mile long horse trip brought meaning into the life of Ray Knell, a Green Beret and Afghanistan war veteran.  His goal was to use animals, nature, and physical activity to inspire other veterans to find help with the affects of PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  These films made for a great evening at a small piece of a working Texas ranch.

“Life is very, very short. It’s up to you to fill the book of life with beautiful and interesting chapters.” – Veteran Ray Knell
