A trailer for Round-Up, a new documentary co-created by Sufjan Stevens that captures the world of rodeo, has been released.
The singer-songwriter will also score the piece, which has been shot by sibling filmmakers Aaron and Alex Craig. Click above to watch the new trailer.
According to The Playlist, Round-Up is the result of a year of production and 60 hours of collected footage, which Stevens and the Craig brothers have edited down to 75 minutes. A screening of the documentary, featuring Stevens performing the soundtrack live, will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
“The film is part of a much bigger argument about the domestication of plants and animals and man’s relationship to the earth,” Stevens told The Playlist. “It’s an existential issue that I think is crucial to have conversation about: man in modern society. We live in a world that is cruel to the earth itself. Man is a biological terrorist.”
