Wild Horses Film Project (Womensphere); Launch Event Sept 1

  1. 1. L.I.V.E. World Productions THE WILD HORSES A Special OF THE EASTERN BARRIER ISLANDS Documentary Overview L.I.V.E. World Productions’ special documentary “The Wild Horses” aims to explore and document the world and conservation of the wild horses that inhabit the Eastern Barrier Islands of Maryland, Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina. We will provide a unique window into the wild horses’ way of life, and the care and conservation efforts that sustain them. We will also explore the historical origin, legends, and myths surrounding these majestic horses, whose stories are part of the history of America’s first settlers. On Assateague Island National Seashore in Maryland, the film will provide a window into these wild horses’ way of life, including how they survive a winter, and what impact they have on their adopted environment. We will also explore the mystery and legends of how they came to live on Assateague. In Virginia, the Chincoteague Fire Department, along with the “Salt Water Cowboys,” will take us on a journey from the birth of a new season of foal - to the famous annual “pony crossing” of the Assateague Channel in July – to the pony penning auction and carnival in Chincoteague. On Cumberland Island in Georgia, we will document how the wild horses live amongst ruins from the18th and 19th Century, including the Dungeness ruins built by Thomas Carnegie in 1884. In North Carolina, on Shackleford Island, we will show the horses’ unique and rich historical relationship with the people who know and care for them, including early American settlers like Sir Walter Raleigh. Our Goals  To share unique knowledge about the lives, history, human relationships, and conservation efforts around the wild horses of the Eastern Barrier Islands of Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, and North Carolina.  To show the horses “in the wild” and document their relationship with nature and with people.  To explore the horses’ history and mythology as part of the histories of these states and of the country.
