Director Sean Cisterna discusses his documentary ‘The Long Rider‘ Coming to Dances With Films on Thursday, June 16, 2022. In speaking with Mr. Cisterna, we learned about his friendship with Filipe Leite, the subject of the documentary. Cisterna and Leite were introduced to each other by a former high school teacher. Once becoming friends, Cisterna read Leite’s book about his journey following his deportation from Canada to Brazil and was originally working on a feature narrative regarding this trek across two continents and 12 countries.

Sean Cisterna – Director of ‘The Long Rider’ Screening Thursday, June 16, 2022 at Dances with Films.

Leite, who was born in Brazil and moved to Canada at a very young age was deported after some bad advice and incomplete immigration paperwork his parents had filled out while residing the Great White North. Unfortunately for Leite, as an adult that incomplete paperwork harmed his residency and he was forced to return to Brazil. So in the most dramatic way possible, he follow the 1925 equestrian adventure inspired by Aimé Tschiffely nearly 100 years later.

The world is a very different place today than it was in 1925 and with boarder crossings, visa issues and a whole host of other adventures, Sean Cisterna was able to tell his friend’s story via the documentary ‘The Long Rider‘ which will be screening at Dances With Films at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 16, 2022 in the TLC Chinese Theatres in Hollywood.

Find out what Cisterna said about making ‘The Long Rider‘, what exactly is a ‘The Long Rider‘ and how the documentary has been received internationally.

The Long Rider‘ screens at Dances With Films at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 16, 2022 in the TLC Chinese Theatres in Hollywood, CA.

Official Synopsis:

When Filipe Leite leaves his adoptive home of Canada, the aspiring journalist sets out on an epic quest to ride from Calgary to his family’s home in Brazil – and later beyond – entirely on horseback. Inspired by Aimé Tschiffely’s 1925 equestrian journey, Filipe’s 8 year odyssey of over 25,000 kms across 12 international borders, sees the young immigrant battle intense heat, drought, speeding transport trucks, nature’s wrath and corrupt border guards on his history-making long ride home.
