Movie Reaches to the Heart of Wild Horse Issue
Film maker James Kleinert shared both his thoughts and latest film Disappointment Valley … A Modern Day Western before a packed house of equine advocates Thursday evening.
Kleinert’s audience included many distinguished and notable guests such as actress Wendie Malick, cinematographer Ginger Kathrens , EWI’s President John Holland, Craig Downer, Vicki Tobin, Elyse Gardner and many, many more.
Kleinert’s film took the audience on a ride from the horse’s prehistoric roots in America’s northwest to the current situation of our native wild horses being managed into extinction by our federal government.
Interviews with individuals such as Viggo Mortenson, Bo Derrick and Sheryl Crow brought home the message of urgency to stop and suspend the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) program of stripping the wild mustangs from the very land that the law requires the BLM to protect them upon.
Through logic and example Kleinert walks the viewer through the course of events that has brought a former population of 2 million down to less than 25,000 wild horses in the west.
A must see for our country’s decision makers Kleinert and his distinguished audience will be meeting with legislators this morning and then gathering with hundreds of wild horse advocates, in front of the White House, to broadcast the message that we must suspend these round-ups, now, before it is too late and the last wild mustang has disappeared.
