Join us for an exhilarating and deeply affecting film about life, young love and the challenges of growing up queer on the harsh but magnificent Wind River reservation in Wyoming.
Filmed over three years, Pure Grit chronicles the life of Sharmaine Weed, a Native American bareback horse racing champion as she navigates the highs and lows of life on and off the reservation.
Sharmaine has faced more than her share of troubles—but her love of extreme bareback horse racing has sustained her throughout. An undefeated champion until she’s forced to give up racing to care for her sister after a terrible accident, Sharmaine finds solace and support in her burgeoning relationship with Savannah, a city girl who moves to the rez to help her care for her family.
But the path we choose doesn’t always take us where we want to go…as Sharmaine and Savannah soon discover.
