The Wildlife Experience and Denver Film Society are partnering to screen “American Mustang” during the Starz Denver Film Festival.
The 36th Starz Denver Film Festival, sponsored by Starz Entertainment and produced by the Denver Film Society, announced its full festival lineup, and The Wildlife Experience is screening “American Mustang” on Nov. 10.
“American Mustang” is a documentary presented in 3-D that examines the plight of wild horses in the American West while considering their place in the national psyche.
Produced by area native, Ellie Phipps Price, the film combines a historical overview with sweeping footage of its majestic four-legged protagonists. The film also weaves in a narrative interlude involving a young woman on a quest to help protect the mustangs and a modern-day cowboy who shows us what it’s like to break a stallion by gently earning its trust.
Tickets are on sale for $10 in advance or $12 at the door (if available), or by calling 720-488-3344. Doors open at 6 p.m. Film begins at 7 p.m. The filmmakers will be attending to introduce the film and answer questions.
