New family horse film takes on human trafficking


Human trafficking is a hot topic today. The family film, Unbridled, which opened in select theaters nationwide on January 18, seeks to delicately tackle the issue.

Founded in 2005, Cinespots is a Silicon Valley-based film-distributor that delivers content that allows exhibitors to serve their local communities. The company announced that they’ve partnered with Moving Visions Entertainment for the US theatrical release of the film.

Directed by John David Ware, the film tells the powerful story of an abused girl who teams up with an abused horse on a journey of healing.

It features a fine cast of Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight; The Expendables), T.C. Stallings (War Room; Courageous), Rachel Hendrix (October Baby), Jenn Gotzon (Frost/Nixon) and newcomer Tea McKay, who plays Sarah Miller, the lead character. Watch the trailer below:

The film is inspired by the equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) program of the Corral Riding Academy in Cary, NC, which helps abused girls heal by pairing them with rehabilitated horses. Unbridled draws attention to sex trafficking and domestic abuse, tackling these difficult issues in a delicate way.

Ultimately, the film is an uplifting story of overcoming some of life’s greatest obstacles. “Sarah’s journey of healing evokes tears that transcend into heartfelt joy,” says the film’s producer Christy McGlothlin. Unbridled has won numerous film festival awards including the prestigious EQUUS WINNIE Award.

“We’re delighted to partner with Moving Visions to share this powerful film directly with the viewers that will appreciate it most,” said Tedd Faraone, Cinespots CEO and Founder. “Unbridled is the perfect film for Cinespots’ targeted outreach which brings an audience to their local theater.”
