Additionally, the ranch owners were establishing new rules that did not allow cowboys to receive calves as part of their pay, brand mavericks, or run small herds on their employers’ land. Many cowboys felt cheated by these new laws and believed that they solely benefitted ranch owners (Zeigler).

Unfortunately, Sirens is the first SAC student film that I truly did not like and, honestly, it was difficult to see past the plot, which, again, I really did not enjoy or understand at many points. It had a few strong aspects independent of the story, but as Weston says in Directing Actor, not even great acting can make a poor script into a truly great movie.

I have thought about it quite a bit and I am still unsure of what the film wanted me to take away from it.

Is it possible to take offense to something as simple as a team name? The Washington Redskins were originally known as the Boston Braves. When the team moved to the nation’s capital the name was changed to honor the first head coach who identified as a Sioux Indian (Leiby).
