Teaser for WILD BEAUTY: Mustang Spirit of the West (2021)


Our own upcoming documentary, Wild Beauty: Mustang Spirit of the West seeks to cast a spotlight on the issues wild horses are facing today. In 2019, the founders of The Wild Beauty Foundation embarked on a two week journey to film wild horses in Utah, Wyoming, and Nevada to gather footage for the narrative feature film Black Beauty -- to root the titular character of "Beauty" authentically in the American West.

That two week trip quickly transformed into a full fledged documentary, which will feature both sweeping imagery of wild horses from around the country, along with the journey of the filmmakers and how they came across these issues.

Look out for Wild Beauty: Mustang Spirit of the West in 2021.
