Sweetgrass

"[D]epicts the twilight of a defining chapter in the history of the American West - the dying world of Western herders, descendants of Scandinavian and northern European homesteaders. The film follows a group of modern-day cowboys as they lead an enormous flock of sheep on an arduous 150-mile up into Montana's breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. A project that took nearly a decade to complete, this astonishingly beautiful documentary intimately captures a way of life that has been integral to the fabric of human existence since the dawn of history"--Container.

Bus Stop

Beauregard "Bo" Decker and Virgil Blessing set out from their ranch in Montana to Phoenix, Arizona on the bus, so Bo can participate in a big rodeo. Bo is a brash, obnoxious, at times rather dislikable young man, skilled at ridin' and rustlin' and not much more. Bo has in his mind that there in the big city, he's going to find "an angel" and take possession of her. In Phoenix, he meets Cherie. She had enough gumption to get out of Arkansas, and is now trying to earn enough money to get to L.A. But Cherie isn't quite ready to become Bo's personal angel, even if it would get her out of a dive girlie club!
