Our guests tonight are documentary filmmaker James Kleinert, and co-writer Kurt Brungardt, who will be talking about their new documentary “Disappointment Valley: A Modern Day Western.”
James Kleinert wanted to find the reasons behind the brutal roundups by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that are pushing wild horses to the edge of extinction, and discovered that the extraction industries have been perverting the laws that protect both wild horses and public lands. Oil and gas fracturing, uranium and other “rare earth” mining is immanent in Disappointment Valley in Colorado.
Kleinert was tagged as a potential eco-terrorist and was put under surveillance by the government. He partnered with Dan Stotter, one of the nation’s leading Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) attorneys, to investigate the surveillance. His FOIA case, Kleinert vs. BLM, won a major victory. Kleinert recently attended BLM roundups of wild horses in the Red Desert Complex in Wyoming.
You can watch their previous documentary, “Wild Horses & Renegades” HERE.
This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey (V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs) of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
