"Gorgeously filmed in black and white which gave it a richtone. Remarkable animals whose existence impacts their environment and caretakers. This film is mesmerizing. Its pace is an extension of the characters' respect of one another and the land. Long artful fixed angle shots in black & white emphasize the old time nature of horse based farming. Meticulously constructed crisp textures and brilliant composition of each scene. Great music. These stories develop at their own pace; each interesting and compelling." - Jean McGlothlin
Workhorse follows three humans whose work and lives are deeply connected with their stoic equine partners. Filmed in beautiful black-and-white, this lyrical documentary reflects on and honours our ancient dependence on horse power.
