WINDSTORM - AND THE WILD HORSES
© SamFilm/Marc Reimann

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2017

Mika has become a reputed ‘horse whisperer’. She and her beloved black stallion Windstorm one day depart for Andalusia, which is Windstorm’s place of origin. There they discover a magical oasis where a herd of wild horses comes to drink. But to ensure the future of the hacienda where she is staying, its owner is forced to sell the land and a large company has its eye on the oasis with its pristine spring water. To save the oasis, the source of the wild horses’ life, Mika and her friends plan to revive an ancient tradition: a wild horse race. If the event becomes a success the oasis will gain heritage status and governmental protection. What Mika and Windstorm do not yet know, however, is that they are still to face their greatest challenge.
