I wanted to title this “Police Beat director to make documentary on horse sex” but that would have been a bit too misleading.
I’m sure many of us remember the case in Washington of a Boeing engineer who turned up dead from severe internal rupturing after trying to have sex with a stallion (named, appropriately enough, Big Dick) while his frend (the engineer’s, not Dick’s) filmed the encounter.
As one Doper put it (paraphrased), “next time you get on a 747, consider that it was designed in part by a man who failed to notice the size difference between a horse’s penis and a human’s rectum.”
Anyway, independent film director Robinson Devor (director of Police Beat, which was screened at Sundance in 2005) is now working on In the Forest, There is Every Kind of Bird, a documentary scheduled for release in 2007 that will put a human face on this widely misunderstood story. A human face no doubt wearing a very surprised expression.
I’m not sure about the title, though. My choice would have been “And The Horse He Rode In On”.
