Each month, we show you a short film that’s moved us beyond the day – meaningful stories that inspire us to pause, think and feel.
The Wild Inside is a haunting short film about inmates in the Arizona state-prison system working to break wild horses as they prepare for their own release.
“And so, out of the darkness, comes a herd of masterless strays, brought by the colonizers, left like a papertrail of conquest,” says Andrew Michael Ellis, Director and Cinematographer.
“500 years of these living symbols, these galloping canvases, pacing over the plains and mountains, upon which Americans, indigenous and non-, have scribed their mythologies of the western pioneer, the warrior, the cowboy, the poet.”
“Now, I’m getting out of here, but I don’t know if I’m ever going to work with horses again.”
