A Documentary for People Who Like Bulls More Than Bullfighters

New Atlantis Digital Media (2002)–The fighting bull is a species that notoriously represents Spanish identity. However, it is commonly forgotten that before a bull becomes the central character of the Spanish national ‘fiesta’, this animal has grown up in and been part of a rich natural environment. In this 56-minute documentary we examine the ecological complexity surrounding the life and development of a bull in all stages of his short life and we gain some insight into the role played by the fighting bull in the ecosystem in which he grows up from gestation and birth until reaching the age of four.  He has been free in nature for four years. Then he is taken to the bullring.
