Watch: Gorgeous, Inspiring Short 'Holy Dog' Starring Brady Jandreau
"If there's something you wanna see, if there's something you wanna do, put your head down and go for it because… nobody knows when God's going to call their name." Oh my, what a beautiful short film. Holy Dog is a short film made by Shern Sharma starring American cowboy Brady Jandreau - the very same Brady who starred in the outstanding film The Rider. This is kinda a follow-up to that, following Brady after his traumatic injuring riding a bucking bronco. In this short, he heads down to the Patagonia highlands in South America (the city seen in this is Santiago, Chile, though they also used Argentinian film services). I just love how poetic and moving and inspiring Brady's words are. Especially the part about how people have "forgotten about just living" and how we can't choose our passions but we can embrace them. A must watch.
