The Power of the Whisper in Colombia with Buck Associate Producer Sofia Santana
Guatavita, Colombia –
On Film Forward’s trip to Colombia, Sofia Santana, Associate Producer of Buck, traveled not only with the film she helped create but also to her familial home country.
As a native Spanish speaker and frequent traveler to Colombia, Sofia made audiences feel at home and facilitated conversations about Buck Brannaman, a horse whisperer who overcame difficult circumstances in his own life to embrace a gentler way of existing in the world.
Sofia also visited a horse whisperer in Guatavita, Colombia, who does some work similar to Buck Branaman, with the addition of working with disabled children. Watch Sofia’s journey to Guatavita here as she visits a horse whisperer, screens the film for an audience there, and talks about the themes she was moved by in conversations along the journey.
