“We are thrilled to bring our work to Montana where the horse is still an integral part of cultural heritage; where people, Native and otherwise, so boldly celebrate the horse and all it has given us and continues to give us,” say filmmakers Jen Miller and Sophie Dia Pegrum.
The two films screening are part of an ongoing series of compelling documentaries created for their Horsefly Films Rare Equine Trust, formed with the mission of creating a film folio on endangered rare equines and equine cultures around the world. Their cinematic series captures the mythical splendor, history and fragile position of rare equines worldwide and the tireless work of those trying to preserve them.
“The horse is a reminder of man’s loftier connection to nature and many of these breeds will disappear without intervention - a great loss to humanity. Despite modern technology making horses obsolete for many, the debt to history remains. They are an integral part of who we are, of who we became, and it is our duty to preserve that bond. Join us in celebrating the noble equine!” say Jen and Sophie.
The filmmaking team will also be appearing as part of a special filmmaking panel on Saturday, September 19th at 4:30 PM at the University Center Theater.
