A film about New Zealand’s wild Kaimanawa horses is among many equestrian movies and documentaries featuring at this year’s Equus Film Festival in New York.
The New Zealand made film, Wind Eaters, tells the story of three sisters who save 11 wild horses. The trio, Vicki, Kelly and Amanda Wilson, were also the subject of a television series, Keeping up with the Kaimanawas.
Running from November 20 to 21, the festival offers feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos, commercials, art and more.
The Equus Film Festival, founded in 2013, is the first festival oriented around equestrian themed content from around the world. Many films have gained recognition, found international distribution and reached global audiences via the festival.
The festival takes place at the vintage Village East Cinema, 181-189 2nd Avenue at 12th Street, New York City.
