Hung Up

Damon O'Steen
United States, 2020, 13 min.

In English.
Includes adult language.

Six months after a brutal bull-riding injury, Patty "Duke" struggles to handle the pain and to support her hot-headed cowboy husband, until his gambling addiction forces her to risk paralysis...and make one last bid at a ten-second ride.

Director's Statement

Hung Up was inspired after I met Duke Largo Wimberly, a real cowgirl and professional bull rider who allowed me to shadow her and her cowgirl friends as they practiced riding bulls at an old rusty practice ring out in Middle-of-Nowhere, Texas. Together we were determined to update the cowboy mythology to a cowgirl mythology. What I discovered about these cowgirl bull riders was that regardless of all the injuries they sustained, they yearn for every opportunity to ride. But what if one of them were unable to continue her passion? What would that story be?
