Dark Horse: Salt Spring Film Festival

October 19, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

darkhorse-mainSet in a former mining village in Wales, Dark Horse is the inspirational true story of a group of friends from a working men’s club who decide to take on the elite ‘sport of kings’ and breed themselves a racehorse. Raised on a slagheap allotment, their foal grows into an unlikely champion, beating the finest thoroughbreds in the land, before suffering a near fatal accident. Nursed back to health by the love of his owners – for whom he’s become a source of inspiration and hope – he makes a remarkable recovery, returning to the track for a heart-stopping comeback. Dark Horse is an unforgettable, heart-stopping, crowd-pleaser of a film, about a working-class horse who believed he could take on and beat the best. Winner of the World Documentary Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
