The Cinch is an eight minute observational slice-of-life documentary film about growing up on a ranch, how that fits into today’s society, and how the lifestyle prepares young boys for life. The film is shot over the course of one year. We track our hero, Cinch, as he learns to mount a horse on his own. Mounting a horse ‘solo’ is a right of passage for a ranching family. For Cinch, it’s a lesson from his father that can be applied to many aspects of his life. This is a coming of age story in a small sliver of life that is often forgotten about in the rural midwest.
