NATIONAL ANTHEM

Watch Trailer Director: Luke Gilford
Cast: Charlie Plummer, Eve Lindley, Mason Alexander Park

Dylan (Charlie Plummer) is a construction worker in rural New Mexico burdened with supporting his young brother and a mother struggling with alcohol abuse. Instead of plugging along into a dead-end existence, he decides to change direction in life and embark on a search for “The American Dream” by joining up with a group of queer rodeo performers.

Directed by Luke Gilford, and based on his photography monograph documenting the gay experience within the culture of western rodeos, National Anthem is a unique film that takes viewers into a world they think they know well and shows them a new perspective on the search for self-determination.

Beyond its touching love story, National Anthem shares with Gilford’s monograph a striking directness in its presentation of the queer rodeo community. The film feels delicately radical.
