ROAMING WILD (USA, 2014, 65 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere This modern-day Western tells the story of an invisible battle being waged across the American West over natural resources, water and even freedom. Wild horses find themselves at the epicenter of an age-defining controversy in which the demands of modern development collide with the needs of the wild. Marlow Dahl runs a family cattle ranch in rural Nevada and grazes his cows on public lands. Jill Starr started Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue to save wild horses from going to slaughter. Dan Elkins turns to technology to invent new solutions for managing wild horse populations. The public lands they call home are lands of limited resources and increasing demands and competition for those resources. Will family ranching in the West still be viable in the future so Marlow’s children can inherit that way of life? Directed by Sylvia Johnson. Produced by Angelica Das and Sylvia Johnson.

Hosted by Chris Palmer, Director, Center for Environmental Filmmaking, American University. Discussion with filmmakers Angelica Das and Sylvia Johnson follows screening.
