A bushman and a National Parks ranger race to save a mob of Blue Mountain brumbies

Luke Carlon grew up taking tourists on horse trips along the Coxs river, which his family has ridden since the 1820’s. All that ended when the river was declared a wilderness area. Now the National Parks need Luke’s help to remove a mob of wild horses from Burragorang valley, which provides Sydney’s water supply, as it can only be accessed on horseback. Will the fiercely independent horseman and the National Parks Rangers come to see the world through each other’s eyes? Can the unruly brumbies be saved from culling? Find out in this fascinating new documentary about Sydney’s wild backyard.

Join the filmmakers for a Q&A after the screening!
