Our Mother the Mountain
  • Year2019
  • Duration40 min

In the remote mountains of Southwestern New Mexico that has long been a ranching country, only a handful of men still know the old cowboy ways. Our Mother the Mountain is a documentary poem told entirely in the voices of three cowboys who eked out a hardscrabble existence in a rough terrain. This is an elegy before they will disappear, a story of solitude, loss, and rugged beauty.
