UNBRANDED

This powerful film takes on the issue of America’s wild horses. Currently, 50,000 wild horses are in government holding facilities in the United States awaiting adoption. Many will languish there, largely because of their reputation for being unpredictable.

After taking mustangs on a pack trip and watching them outperform their domestic counterparts, Ben Masters, a young Texas horseman, wanted to prove the worth of wild horses and raise awareness about their plight. He gathered three of his best friends and hatched an outrageous plan to adopt, train and ride wild horses 3,000 miles from the Mexican border to Canada through some of the American West’s wildest terrain.

What ensues is an epic journey of self-discovery, friendship and big landscapes that entails runaway horses, perilous mountain passes, debilitating injuries, booming thunderstorms, personal clashes, rodeo rides, sweeping vistas and one sassy donkey.

Expertly woven with gorgeous cinematography, interviews with wild horse experts and just the right dose of levity, Unbranded is a soaring tale of resilience and adventure that will make you laugh, cry and develop a newfound deference for these emblematic Western creatures.

AFTERGLOW — LIGHT SUIT SEGMENT

Hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski films ever made, Afterglow is a testament to the Sweetgrass legacy of creating bold, uncompromising, creative imagery. Filmed at night in B.C. and Alaska’s backcountry with powerful lights and ski suits studded with LED lights.

Directed by: Michael Brown, Nick Waggoner


DARK WOODS BMX

Somewhere deep in a dark forest of South Wales, BMX riders Drew Benzanson and Morgan Wade have built a their dream playground of ramps, rollers and walls — an ideal setting for physics-defying tricks that don’t even make sense.

2014 UK / Duration: 3 mins
Directed by: George Marshall, Will Evans


NATURE RX

Feeling tired, irritable or stressed out? Try nature. This harmless prescription has been shown to relieve the crippling symptoms of modern life — indifference, cynicism, narcissism, even murderous rage — and is healthy for people of all ages and even pets. Side effects may include authenticity, confidence, spontaneous euphoria or being in a good mood for no apparent reason.

THE RIGHT

Some waves are not meant to be surfed, and this is arguably one of them. Located off the coast of Western Australia, The Right is the scariest-looking wave in the world. After a near drowning in 2012, surfer Ryan Hipwood heads back for a shot at redemption.

DRAINAGE DITCH KAYAK

In the suspense novel Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn writes, “…if you’re about to do something, and you want to know if it’s a bad idea, imagine seeing it printed in the paper for all the world to see.” But sometimes bad ideas become brilliant films.

Too fast to be sorry, James Kelly. Thanks for skating that one so we never have to.
