Robert Mims – The Texan bull rider


This film is a portrait of Robert Mims, who after forty three years riding bulls is approaching retirement. Robert, one of the few competing black Texan riders, has become legendary in this tight knit community. In his more than four decades of dominating the chute, Robert has seen many of his fellow riders rise, fall and pick themselves up to ride again. “The world is changing, you either change with it or stay behind.” – Robert Mims.
