The Groovy Movie Club will host its first screening of the new year at 7 p.m. on Jan. 6. The Haywood County group will show the Sundance Film Festival’s 2011 Audience Award Winner for Documentary “Buck.”
Buck, directed by Cindy Meehl, is about the power of non-violence and horse trainer Buck Brannaman, who uses principles of respect and trust to tame horses. Robert Redford consulted Brannaman while shooting his feature film The Horse Whisperer. Audience members at Sundance remarked that it was the best movie they had seen there in 10 years.
The Groovy Movie Club meets once a month at 6:15 p.m. to share a mostly organic pot-luck dinner, and the film begins at 7 p.m., with a discussion following. It meets at Buffy Queen’s home in Dellwood.
The Groovy Movie Club is beginning its sixth year of presenting films, both documentary and feature, with a message.
