The Buffalo Man: An Urban Legend
Journalism can be a dangerous profession, but it takes a surreal turn in El Hombre Bufalo when an urban legend and true events collide.
“El Hombre Bufalo” is Spanish for “The Buffalo Man” and you will see a man in a buffalo head in the movie that is set in Mexico.
Much of it has a dreamlike feel, but there is a serious story underneath the surreal dream.
We’ve all seen the dangers investigative journalists have faced recently in the US, but it is even more dangerous for Mexican journalists.
In fact, it is one of the most dangerous places for those in the profession as criminals are willing to protect their interests at any cost.
It takes strong conviction and bravery for journalists to continue to dig for and expose the truth.
Release Date 11/9/21
The film is inspired by true events and the poetry of Julio Cortázar, with a surreal aesthetic and disruptive narrative that underscores the disenchantment and dangers of investigative journalism in Mexico.
The story follows Eric, a young journalist in Mexico City who stops writing after he receives death threats.
Obsessed with an elderly homeless man who has dementia and a mythical being who takes care of abandoned children, he decides to write again, even if it costs him his life.
