Cowboy Poets

92 mins


Cowboy Poets is an unlikely Western set in the world of cowboy poetry gatherings. Every year since 1985, they’ve gathered to share their heartfelt cowboy poetry in Elko, Nevada. At once a celebration of the creative process, our need to create, to gather, to share, Cowboy Poets reveals a modern West wrangling with change and environmental threats. This film follows some of these poets as they reckon with the West’s founding myths, the fossil fuel economy and natural disasters that threaten their way of life, and their relationship to the land as they spin these struggles into moving, lyrical verse.
