"Gee, Haw" - the #stockmen of the plains #drive the four-ox #wagon using these two words. Through their #mysterious#practice - they are claimed to drive their #draft#animals without #reins, only using #words - we were let into such #secrets as the #preparation of "slambuc" (traditiona food of the plains), the #peculiarities of #horse and grey #cattle keeping, and the #solution of #unexpectedly arising #situations. This #movie seeks to #show the #viewer the day-to-day #life of stockmen, #wranglers - the #people of #Hortobágy. Our #protagonists were taken in as #children by the #plains, which - they say - once #captivates you, #keeps you #forever. Through the intimate, honest interviews we get a glimpse of the part of their lives which usually remains hidden - as if peeping through the keyhole. Owing to the time spent in the field and the mutual trust we built, we explored such topics as time, the relativity of the course of one's life, commitment, fear of passing away and the relationship of men living a hard life to their women. The short stories give us a peek of the laconic or smart old shepherds, the hardships of the life in the wilderness and the frequently appearing humor, which runs through the life of these tough men living in the ruthless Hortobágy plains. Wranglers of the wild east have never been to the Wild West but believe and claim that life in Hortobágy has been hard and still is. 2018-2020 Hortobágy Máta puszta. #
