SUE SUE II... in General Discussion Posted February 20, 2018 The sport of bullfighting is symbolically a meeting of a dismounted man who first encounters a large, wild beast. The antithesis to that premise occurs when a large, wild beast befriends man. One of the most poignant real-life events that illustrates that premise for me is the rescue of a young man in the Texas Hill Country in the 1990's. A river rapidly rising in a flash flood forced a boy to climb a tree near the edge of a river. Being washed downstream by the raging floodwaters was a 12-point deer. It maneuvers across the river by swimming at great force and arrives at the tree where the young man is clinging to life, and nudges him to sit on his back. The deer eventually reaches the shore and deposits him to safety. Such a story of man and beast and how they bond will be coming to the TCMFF this spring. The Black Stallion is also thematically related in some ways to the film of Scott Dell's book, “Island of the Blue Dolphins” from 1964.
