The Whinnies! Best of Equine Film
Announcing The Whinnies! at the 2018 Napa Valley Film Festival, November 7 - 11
2 great films screen together in 3 fabulous locations
Devil’s Garden (7:20)
Devil’s Garden is a national forest treasure in the far northeast corner of California, and home to the last sustainable herd of wild horses in this state. However, they are in danger of becoming completely wiped away because of profit taking entities on our public lands.
In the Horse-Heart-Space (70:00)
What happens when adopted and foster children and rescued horses, cast off by their owners, meet? Where do the life-parallels between these youth and these horses help the other to claim their sense of belonging? How does this human-horse-love relationship create ambassadors for a better world? Is it possible horses can help create a more loving generation of humans who care about taking repsonsibility for themselves, and each other?
