SMALL FARMS RISE, A HORSE WHISPERER changes the way we understand animals, and SILENT FILMS remind us where we’ve been. While many things change, some things last forever.
The world of movies is changing. Filmmaking has been democratized through technology and new films are emerging at an incredible rate. These new films are able to tap into the exciting social, economic, and environmental changes which surround us.
In “Small Farm Rising,” we’re shown how, right now, in our back yards, a new generation of farmers are redefining agriculture in America by going back to the land to create pesticide free, sustainable gardens.
With “Buck,” we learn an equine language; we come to know a horse on its own terms, and witness the healing powers of horsemanship. And we come to know one man’s heart-rending journey out of suffering and into redemption.
The Lake Placid Film Forum is embarking on its own journey towards year-round programming, bringing you the rich, poignant films which carry us towards the new horizons of the industry, and the future of the world around us.

“Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will.” So says Buck Brannaman, a true American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine grueling months a year helping horses with people problems.
A real-life “horse-whisperer” Buck Brannaman eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses – and people – with his understanding, compassion and respect.
