Ben Masters set out to inspire adoption of the 50,000 wild horses living in government captivity. He recruited three friends and hatched an outrageous plot to adopt, train, and ride a string of mustangs 3,000 miles from the Mexican border to Canada through the wildest terrain of the American West. A story told with spectacular cinematography, Unbranded is a soaring drama of danger and self-discovery that shines a bright light on the complex plight of our country’s wild horses.

THE STARFISH THROWERS
Worlds apart, a five-star chef, a twelve year-old girl, and a retired schoolteacher discover how their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement in the fight against hunger. This documentary tells the tale of these remarkable individuals and the unexpected challenges they face. Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions.

JUST EAT IT: A FOOD WASTE STORY
We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away.
