Several weeks ago thousands upon thousands visited the Cleveland International
Film Festival to see a variety of films.  We were fortunate to be among those who
saw Buckle Brothers, produced by Marquette “Mark” Williams, a native of
Northeast Ohio.  In addition to seeing a fine film, we were blessed to be special
guests of Mark's very proud parents Sheila Williams and Carl Williams.

The gentleman who spoke briefly to introduce Buckle Brothers stated that it was
the first time in his memory that a director’s mother bought out the whole theater.  
In was truly a celebration of Mark’s talent, ability, dedication and dynamic
personality, and a testament to the strong and loving impact parents can have.

One theater would not hold all the attendees, so the special guests of Mark and
his parents were in one theater and the general public was in another theater.  
After the theater presentation, a frank talk, and question and answer period with
Mark, some guests retreated to a standing room (and not much of that) only
hospitality session in a nearby hotel suite.  Guests ranging from “just us” to “I know
you” included Mayor Kathy Procop and other officials from Twinsburg, the
community that can claim Mark as its own.

In addition to Cleveland, Buckle Brothers credits include the Annapolis Film
Festival, BHERC Film Festival, Del Ray Beach Film Festival, Pan African Film
Festival, East Lansing Film Festival the Noir Film Festival and AFI Fest, among
others.

“A Documentary on the soul of a Cowboy.”  Buckle Brothers is the tale of four
young adults, Lil Ron (23), Yah-Ya (18), Mike (18), and Jazmine (18), from the
streets of South Central Los Angeles and Compton, California who have found a
different kind of hope in the form of the cowboy lifestyle.  In pursuit of the
prestigious “Rookie of the Year” title, Lil Ron Jennings leads this small group of
young bull riders on the Summer 2003 Bill Pickett Rodeo circuit.  Bonded by
dreams, respect, and a need for mentoring, they thrive in an alternative subculture
for inner-city youth, rarely seen by outside eyes – the way of the Urban Cowboy.

The previous paragraph was extracted from the Buckle Brothers web site at www.
bucklebrothers.net.  I have to add that the Buckle Brothers included three males
and one female, so chauvinists, take one step back.  For additional information
please visit that site.
