BECOMING BULLETPROOF documents the making of an original Western film called, Bulletproof. Bulletproof features actors with and without disabilities who meet every year at Zeno Mountain Farm (ZMF) to write, produce, and star in original short films. Founded by two brothers and their wives, Zeno Mountain Farm’s philosophy is to create a truly inclusive community that builds genuine friendships that transcend stigma and stereotypes. For them, their films aren’t about making a statement; “It’s all about making awesome movies.”
Inside the whirlwind filmmaking process of mastering lines, pushing through take after take, and grappling with high expectations, BECOMING BULLETPROOF chronicles the genesis of a riveting film and a personally and socially transformative experience. The film captures the essence of artistic expression through vibrant human bonds and powerful insights. As one of the actors says: “I do not want pity because I have a disability, I just want to be understood. I want disability to have a seat at the table in pop culture.”
