Loose Horses – June 15th

On Thursday, June 15th, at 7:30pm at the Emerson Center, The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Bozeman premiere of Loose Horses, the new documentary from award-winning Bozeman-based director Kathy Kasic. Kasic and producer Barb Marshall will be in attendance and will hold a Q&A after the screening.

Loose Horses takes an unbiased look at the American loose horse culture. It is the tale of a triad of iconic characters: the horse owners who sell their horse at the auction, the horse buyer who looks to find re-sale options, and the meat buyer who is taking the blame for an industry he didn’t create. The film places the viewer inside the auction house, revealing the perspective of the horses bound by human politics.

Loose Horses premiered at the Ethnografilm Festival in Paris, France in April, 2017 and has screened at the Northwest Film Festival in Portland, OR and the Shane Lalani Center in Livingston, MT.

Kathy Kasic is an internationally published biologist and holds an M.S. in Biology and an M.F.A in Science and Natural History Filmmaking.  She is both a producer and camerawoman with over 12 years of experience and is a faculty member in the School of Film and Photography at Montana State University. Her film work has been featured on National Geographic, BBC, PBS, History Channel, CBS and Discovery Channel and has received accolades at numerous film festivals. Producer Barb Marshall lives in Clyde Park, MT, has an Anthropology degree from the University of Colorado and is also a Registered Nurse. Her interest in the film went beyond horses to look at how humans make difficult decisions and how they talk about their ambivalence regarding those choices.

Doors open at 7:00pm. Tickets are available at the door or before the show at Cactus Records and Movie Lovers. Tickets are also available online at www.bozemandocseries.org. The fourth season of the Bozeman Doc Series will begin in October.
