WATCH BIGHORN NOW!
Bighorn is a 15-minute, supernatural historical fantasy based on a true fact: that General Custer's bandmaster, Felix Vinatieri -- an Italian immigrant and the great-great-grandfather of Super Bowl-winning kicker Adam Vinatieri -- was ordered to stay behind at the 7th Cavalry's Powder River camp and missed the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The story takes place in 2002 and 1876. Bighorn is the latest from award-winning filmmakers Alfred Thomas Catalfo (writer/director of the web hit The Norman Rockwell Code and winner of 21 major screenwriting competitions) and Glenn Gardner (producer of Cannes Film Festival Palm d'Or winner Sniffer). The renowned Steve Alexander, recognized by the U.S. Congress as the world’s foremost Custer living historian, portrays Custer. Native American and adopted Lakota Bill Watkinson portrays the Lakota Medicine Man. The NFL Network graciously granted the filmmakers permission to use footage from the 2002 Super Bowl. Nathaniel Philbrick, Pulitzer Prize-nominated author of the New York Times Bestseller "The Last Stand," applauded Bighorn on his blog, calling it "an ingenious and demented intermingling of the Battle of the Little Bighorn with the New England Patriots" and telling his readers "you've got to see this movie!"
We are honored to have Vietnam and 7th Cavalry Regiment veteran Robert West appear in Bighorn as a member of Custer's 7th.
