Swift Current / Short Doc


Swift Current is an Amskapi Pikuni. A tribal member of the Blackfeet Nation in Northwest Montana, USA. And a cowboy. Wild at heart he goes to rodeos – riding broncs. 8 seconds thrill ride like once his ancestors chasing buffalo. His pragmatism struck me. In the vastness of the Blackfeet Country Swift Current's mindset seems like a rare yet strong blossom - trying to make the most of it. It's an example of a human being in the 21st century. It shows the pride of a young man in a world of contradictions. That life is a matter of perspective.
