Special Screening Of “Buck” Being Held At St. Catherine’s Village

St. Catherine’s Village is hosting a special screening of “Buck” on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at 2 p.m. in the community’s Independent Living Activity Room.

The movie, which examines the life of celebrated “horse whisperer” Buck Brannaman, has been shown in theaters all over the world and has won more than 25 awards including the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award: Documentary and the Heartland Award for Truly Moving Picture. It also was an Official Selection for the SXSW Film Festival.

The richly textured and visually stunning film follows Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his successful approach to horse training where he teaches people to communicate with the animals through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck transforms horses—and people—with his understanding, kindness and respect. Hailed as a truly American story about an unsung hero, Buck is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.

Executive producer and director Cindy Meehl will provide an introduction prior to the movie screening and be on hand for a question and answer session afterwards. Inspired by Buck’s compassionate horsemanship and how the human spirit can triumph over violent circumstances, Meehl spent more than two years filming the documentary. She also founded Cedar Creek Productions, LLC.

“We are thrilled to be able to show our residents such a highly acclaimed film but more importantly, to give them the opportunity to interact with the director in an intimate setting,” said Mary Margaret Judy, executive director at St. Catherine’s Village.

Meehl chose St. Catherine’s Village to showcase her film because she has strong ties to the Madison, Mississippi all-inclusive life care community. St. Catherine’s Village offers a mission-focused environment that encourages residents in all levels to enjoy fullness of life, health and faith. It is the first all-inclusive CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community) in the state to earn accreditation by CARF-CCAC. This “commitment to excellence” seal signifies that the campus exceeds the standards established by the only international accrediting body for CCRCs.

The property boasts 160 acres of wooded grounds, protected and beautiful outdoor spaces, and unparalleled facilities along with 24-hour on-duty security and a caring staff that offers companionship and resident-centered care.

Living options include independent living in apartments and garden homes, assisted living in Marian Hall, memory care in Campbell Cove and Hughes Center, and skilled nursing in Siena Center. Also recently introduced was skilled nursing dedicated to memory care.

St. Catherine’s Village is a service of St. Dominic Health Services, Inc. and is sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois, who have owned and operated the hospital since 1946. The private, gated community provides the right care at the right time for those in their retirement years.
