The digital release of the documentary film Saving America’s Horses – A Nation Betrayed has been announced for later this year, marking the film’s 10th anniversary.

Set against some of America’s most pristine sweeping landscapes, the film brings to screen scenes of both wild and domestic horses and burros, together with interviews by nationally renowned veterinarians, trainers, professors, investigators, policymakers and members of the equine community.

The film is described as “a powerful feature documentary film with a deeply passionate look into the world of both wild and domestic horses; their connection to our history and the future of humanity. It’s an intelligent and hard-hitting exposé that reveals how the public has been misled by government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the public, the horses and the environment.”

The 90-minute feature documentary was produced, written and directed by filmmaker, Katia Louise, President WFLF Humanion Films. It stars many of the nation’s foremost experts and leaders in the movement to protect America’s horses including Dr Elliot Katz, Dr Nicholas Dodman, Dr Nena Winand, Dr Lisa Jacobson, Craig Downer, Paula Bacon, John Holland, Nick Zito, Monty Roberts, Victoria McCullough and Madeleine Pickens and more.

Celebrity cast appearances include Paul Sorvino, Linda Gray, Michael Blake, Willie Nelson, Tippi Hedren, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Ken Wahl, The Barbi Twins, Amy and Raelyn Nelson, and Jennifer Pryor.

Nancy Stanley, Saving America’s Horses Associate Producer, author, animal therapy pioneer, said the 10th anniversary release “comes at a time when the demand for truth and the need for ethical and moral justice has never been greater. It’s not just about the horses; it’s about how we as a society of people exist, our footprint on the world and the future of humanity.”

Jay Coskie, Saving America’s Horses Development & Outreach Director, VP WFLF Humanion Films, said the team was “thrilled to celebrate the 10-Year Anniversary of Saving America’s Horses’ bicoastal theatrical release and qualification for the Oscars.”

“This touching yet powerful film delivers provocative storytelling which immerses its audience in a unique and compelling experience; to not only empower them to effect social change, but leaving them wanting to watch it over and over and over again,” Coskie said.

Saving America’s Horses has won multiple international awards on the festival circuit including Best Documentary Film at the Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival, the Royal Bank of Canada Best Environmental Film Award at Film North Huntsville International Film Festival in Canada, plus Awards for Cinematography, Editing Conservation Message and Advocacy at the International Wildlife Film Festival, and many more.

The mission of the film is to “break the cycle of animal cruelty for America’s horses by providing a life-changing resource that cultivates action and inspires social change”.
