Sixteen mustangs, four men, 3000 miles and the adventure of a lifetime. Top audience favourite at Hot Docs 2015, Unbranded follows Ben Masters, Jonny Fitzsimons, Ben Thamer and Thomas Glover as they ride border to border, from Mexico to Canada. Their companions on this trek are adopted wild horses, perfectly suited to the rocky and treacherous terrain, stretching from the Grand Canyon to Yellowstone to Glacier Park. More than just an epic journey, the men hope to inspire adoptions of the over 50,000 wild horses currently living in holding pens in the American West and raise awareness about the fragility of public lands. Exquisitely photographed, Unbranded is an inspiring, hilarious and heartwarming story about the powerful connection between man, beast and nature. – Bloor Cinema
