Sinopsis

Lee Lynch and Lee Anne Schmitt were filling up the tank in their car at the only petrol station that remains in Hanksville, a small town in the south of Utah, when they saw a buffalo head in the back of an abandoned van. One of the last free-roaming herds of American bison live in the Henry Mountains and the surrounding deserts in Utah. Every year, special licenses are issued to hunt the animals and help reduce the excess population. Lynch and Schmitt recorded hunting expeditions for five years. However, The Last Buffalo Hunt is not a documentary on buffalo hunt but a film of cowboys, history, and landscape. A tribute to one of the last natural paradises in America and a statement against its loss.


Bio

Lee Anne Schmitt. She studied at Northwestern University, in Evanston, and the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles, where she now teaches filmmaking (production, scriptwriting, and narrative) in the Film Directing Programme. A versatile multidisciplinary artist whose practice extends from film and performance to photography and writing, she creates evocative, deeply felt works that consider everyday elements of American life as cultural ritual. Exploring the juncture between fiction and reality, she is most at ease with essay films.
