"HORSE & RIDER: A JOURNEY TOWARDS FREEDOM"
Director: Ben Stamper
"Horse & Rider" is a non-conventional look into an increasingly conventional industry of trafficking minors for sexual exploitation. Shot on location in India, this narrative traces the tangled memories of two survivors of child prostitution, and the NGO that is working for their restoration back into society.
Award-winning Director Ben Stamper draws heavily upon monumental cinematography and a lush musical score to explore the complexities of rescuing minors from brothels and their subsequent journey of healing and reintegration.
"Horse & Rider" is a film that leaves commentary to the audience as it presents the tragic and the heroic dimensions of the human condition with an imaginative lyricism and beauty.
