WORKHORSE – Free outdoor screening September 24

Once again, we’ve teamed up with Skeleton Park Arts Festival to present a free, outdoor screening of the documentary WORKHORSE (dir. Cliff Caines). The film follows three humans whose work and lives are deeply connected with their stoic equine partners. Filmed in beautiful black-and-white by Ryan Randall, a Kingston-based cinematographer who just won a Canadian Screen Award for Best Cinematography for his work on this film (congrats, Ryan!).  Grab a blanket or chair, bring some snacks and experience this lyrical documentary that reflects on and honours our ancient dependence on horse power. 

This exquisitely shot elegy for a fading way of life captures the power and beauty of horses with a nostalgic lustre. Caines’ film considers how the relationship between humans and animals changes with the cultural and industrial tides.” – Pat Mullen, Point of View Magazine
