Many Clouds, The People’s Horse receives double nomination at New York film festival
A heartfelt film by Equine Productions is up for two awards at the world’s leading equine film festival
“Many Clouds, The People’s Horse”, a short film by Equine Productions receives two nominations ahead of the EQUUS Film Festival in New York next month. A tribute to former Grand National winner, Many Clouds, the film is selected for two categories – International Documentary and International Director.
A horse of a lifetime, Many Clouds touched the hearts of so many. The film captures the journey of his acclaimed career – from the rise of his talent on the national hunt circuit, to his triumph at the 2015 Grand National which was documented on the Equine Productions’ JockeyCam, worn by Leighton Aspell.
As stated in the opening scene, ‘This is his story’. The story of Many Clouds was closely followed by Equine Productions and the horse holds special memories for Nathan Horrocks, the gelding’s former exercise rider and director of the film, who is delighted with the nominations at the EQUUS Film Festival:
“Many Clouds meant the world to me and thousands of others, I am so happy that an American audience will get to see how much he was loved but also the amazing athlete that he was. This is my tribute to him to say thank you for what he has done for me, both personally and professionally, he literally changed my life.” Nathan Horrocks
The EQUUS Film Festival takes place at the Helen Mills Theater in New York on 17 – 18 November 2017.
