Wild Horse Redemption -- two screenings.

At a prison in the high desert foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, hard-core criminals are given 90 days to tame wild mustangs. They are as different as the worlds they come from. The man who lived by armed robbery and assault and the wild horse from the government range lands are brought together in a most unlikely place. Colorados Canon City Correctional Facility runs a program designed to save some of the estimated 32,000 horses that run wild on public land, which is nearly 4,000 more than the land can sustain, according to the Bureau of Land Management. ----- Beautifully photographed, */The Wild Horse Redemption/* goes beyond the obvious parallels between the wild horses and inmates to reveal deeper connections and lessons. /CASLIS Toronto Film Festival Review/
