Editorial Reviews

Stephanie J. Castillo's best-selling 8-hour DVD documentary, COCKFIGHTERS: The Interviews, presented a non-judgmental, anthropological inquiry into the American subculture of cockfighting and game fowl breeding.
This Special Edition is an 115-minute version.

She carefully selected its set -- the 12-minute short film and 6 interviews. Castillo hones a surprising portrait of this sport and the men and women who do it. The featured interviews are with:
-- Charlie Johnson, a cockfighter brought up in the cockfighting pits of Arkansas who tells us about the famous Hawaiian Derby he is attending in Oklahoma. (9 min)
-- James Pope, a Texan who fights and sells his gamefowl in the Philippines and who granted the filmmaker a peek at his gamefowl farm and memorabilia. (10 min)
-- Paul Romias, a Hawaii cockfighter who talks about the sport in Hawaii's early days, and is shown at his game farm preparing his birds for fighting in the Philippines. (18 min)
-- Carol NeSmith, a well-known cocker from Alabama who takes us to his cockhouse for a training session with roosters prepared for fights in the Philippines. (17 min)
-- Butch Lawson, the promoter of the Sunset Recreation Club in Louisiana gives us a tour of this world- famous pit. (5 min)
-- Martin Edmonds, a gentleman farmer and gamefowl genetisist with ties to Hawaii and California, who no longer likes calling himself a cockfighter, explains the life and passions of a roosterman who's fought all over the world. (17 min)
