The Long Haul
** Filmmakers in attendance! **
(Amy Enser, Seattle, WA, 84 min)
Magic Mike meets The Full Monty in this experimental documentary featuring six “average joes” as they reinvent the limited male revue staples such as Chippendales and Thunder from Down Under. The result is the Buckaroos—a theatrical cowboy western variety show. Beneath the cowboy hats and bedazzled thongs, the documentary explores themes of masculinity and sexuality through the vulnerabilities of each Buckaroo.
“I feel like there’s just so many ways to come at this movie, because it’s fun. You have people who are interested in gender, LGBTQ, or dance/performance. But I think, ultimately, people just have a really good time watching it, and that always is what people come back to with it. It’s something that makes you feel good. That’s really needed for a lot of people when they’re going to watch something. They want to walk away … “There’s a doc, and I walk away feeling happy about life, and it’s amazing.” – Amy Enser, Seattle Gay Scene
PART OF LOCAL SIGHTINGS FILM FESTIVAL
(SEPTEMBER 20-29, 2019): bit.ly/localsightings2019
Programmed closely with community partners as curators, Northwest Film Forum’s 22nd Annual Local Sightings Film Festival invites regional artists to experiment, break, and remake popular conceptions around filmmaking and film exhibition.
Over the course of 10 boundary-pushing days, the festival showcases the growing complexity of creative communities in the Pacific Northwest, by uplifting new talent, providing educational opportunities for youth and adults, supporting the regional film industry, and promoting diverse media as a critical tool for public engagement.
