Phantom Cowboys Doc Trailer

"A poetic look at nature, nurture, opportunity and struggle." Flies Collective + Film Sales have debuted the official trailer for a documentary titled Phantom Cowboys, which premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and stopped by a few other small fests. From filmmaker Daniel Patrick Carbone, Phantom Cowboys follows three teens from small towns in America - revisiting them eight years later after first meeting them. Giving us a look at their lives as they grow up and approach adulthood, and how it's always a struggle for many. The film "captures the consistent threads of responsibility, parenthood, and manhood that weigh on each of these small-town teenagers, regardless of the community that raised him." Carbone is also credited as cinematographer on the film, making this a very personal project for him. Looks like a very moving doc.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Patrick Carbone's doc Phantom Cowboys, from YouTube:
