About

History paints a heroic picture of the so-called "cowboys" of history. Using the "hero" as a metaphor to question his validity, COWBOYS WERE NOT NICE PEOPLE is an attempt to break down the solid foundation upon which myths of modern society are based. Composed entirely on the optical printer, the film involves rhythmic editing and montage sequences of found footage and camera original exploring the mythical frontiers of Western culture and the romanticism of colonialism.
