Filmmaker James Kleinert continues his groundbreaking work in a feature-length documentary film, Disappointment Valley. . . A Modern Day Western. This film examines the plight of America’s wild horses and the rapidly deteriorating condition of our wild and beautiful Public Lands in the majestic haunting American West. (Read Idaho news article here on screening in Ketchum, ID on December 12).
Through interviews with scientific experts, ranchers, historians, wild horse owners, animal rights activists, environmentalists, movie stars, uranium prospectors, and many other colorful characters, Kleinert examines the origins and effects of the recent “Burns Bill” which gutted the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act of 1971 and cleared the way for the slaughter and removal of wild horses in America. Greed and corruption take center stage, exposing how the United States failed energy policy and the current rape and pillage of Western Public Lands by oil, gas, mining and corporate cattle grazing is leading to the extinction of America’s Wild Horses and Burro’s.
“Its not just a pretty picture, these are living things who have a right to coexist in what is a vast landscape, which is the American west. Let’s do something about this”- Viggo Mortenson
