The pilot episode of “Wild Lands Wild Horses” documentary series is an official selection of this year’s Catalyst Film Festival, in Duluth MN.
“Wild Lands Wild Horses” is an exploratory documentary series traveling across 10 states within 150M+ acres of public lands. Wild Horse advocates and photographers, Jamie Baldanza & Deb Lee Carson, transports us through America’s western landscape bringing national awareness to the majestic yet politically complicated lives of America’s Wild Horse. “Wild Lands Wild Horses” features exceptional cinematography of wild horses in their environment as well as input from scientists, BLM employees, Forest and Park service employees, ranchers, public officials, advocates, recreational users, and any others who are willing to provide their experience and connection to our public lands. “Wild Lands Wild Horses” aims to show that we all share the same goal — To Keep The West Wild — for future generations…
“Wild Lands Wild Horses” will be screened on Saturday, October 2, at 3 p.m. and will be followed by a live Q&A with creator Jamie Baldanza.
