Caballerango

Caballerango  (COMPLETED)
USA, México - 60 minutes
Directed by: Juan Pablo González
Produced by: Makena Buchanan, Jamie Gonçalves, Ilana Coleman

In the Mexican village of Milpillas, a family remembers the last day they saw Nando, their youngest, and apprentice of his father José, a lifelong horse wrangler. Through a chorus of voices and an exploration of a community's daily rituals, Caballarango evokes the presence of those who have parted.
