Phantom Cowboys (with short film Glass Bubble Project)
Premiering to acclaim at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, Phantom Cowboys is a documentary that explores the transition from boyhood to adulthood in places where opportunity is a forgotten word. Nick is winding down a high school football career in Trona, California, a derelict mining town on the rim of Death Valley. Larry wiles away the hours hunting rabbits in Pahokee, Floridas sugarcane fields. And Tyler pursues the supreme passion of his life, dirt track racing, in the green woodlands around Parkersburg, West Virginia.Moving gracefully between these subjects, and forward and backward in time, Phantom Cowboys captures the consistent threads of responsibility, parenthood, and manhood that weigh on each of these small-town teenagers, regardless of the community that raised him. Carbone reconnects with each young man years after their first encounters, allowing his audience to observe how their ambitions evolve after just a few years on their own. This technique reveals the tension between personal drive and the uncontrollable social forces that ensure individuals will make their own, unique way in life.
