DOUBLE BILL: Unbranded | Hairy Nose
Take a trip to the American West and wild up your Wednesday.
Four young cowboys hatch an outrageous plot to adopt, train, and ride a string of wild mustangs 3,000 miles from Mexico to Canada through the wildest terrain of the American West. The trip becomes an epic journey of self-discovery, tested friendships, and iconic landscapes that include runaway horses, a sassy donkey, perilous mountain passes, rodeos, sickness, injury, and death. "Unbranded" is a soaring tale of danger and resilience, an emotionally charged odyssey that shines a bright light on the complex plight of the USA's wild horses.

A production by Fin & Fur Films LLC, Implement Productions & Cedar Creek Media LLC

Wildscreen Panda Award nomination: Theatrical Award

The screening will be preceded by the showing of "Hairy Nose", a two minute anti-pollution PSA from WildAid that imagines a world where toxic air pollution has become an accepted part of life in urban China and the resulting evolution of nostril hair.
