What might life look like from the perspective of a horse? Not just any horse, but a top-end racehorse in Ireland? This is the challenge Horses takes up, following three promising, charismatic horses over the course of one rather difficult racing year. Beautiful, unusual, and highly entertaining, the film combines the drama of a sports movie with the exploration of an ancient human obsession, offering a subtle critique of humanity's quirks on the side. Official Selection Sheffield International Documentary Film Festival 2009 "Horses is one of those films you can not take your eyes off. I was trapped from the first frames. Horses represents an evolution in documentary's approach to character and a filmmaker's manifold relationship to their subject. It's not just a great film, it's a step in
a fascinating direction."
