State Theatre to screen award-winning film

The Auburn Placer Performing Arts Center will present “Buck,” the Sundance Film Festival award-winning documentary, at 7 p.m. April 25 at Auburn’s historic State Theatre.

“Buck” follows famous real-life “horse-whisperer” Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful career as a horse-handler and trainer. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses — and people — with his understanding, compassion and respect. In this film, the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero and one of the most successful documentaries of the year, “Buck” tells the story of an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.

Tickets are $8 at the door, with a limited number of seats available for advance purchase online at or call the Box Office at 530-885-0156. The box office opens 90 minutes before show time for each performance.

“Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will.” Buck Brannaman
