Three months after the release still not one review from the Australian Press!
But plenty from the Australian people.
Finally saw it this afternoon at Roseville Cinema. Huge queues and full cinema. Great documentary. Enjoyed!!

Thank you for coming to Young's Southern Cross Cinema tonight. What a great turn-out for such a wonderful documentary! Such rich history & heritage, a powerful story! Scenery was amazing too of this beautiful valley & wild country. Thank goodness there are still people with these wonderful bush skills to share. Thank you again for making this movie for all to enjoy & learn from!
Compelling viewing! I hope more people get to see this lovely film….

I had the privilege of finally seeing your film today at Regal twin. Thank you for telling the country (& hopefully world!) Some of the Carlon's and brumbies story. You told it beautifully and showed our country that there is still good people and heart still out there in sometimes a very bleak world. This will be a film I share with my children when they are older to show them the country and people I rode with as a child. What a fabulous legacy you have created for some beautiful people!

Thank you so much for making such an informative, very needed and poignant documentary. It was a visual feast of our untouched wilderness, incorporating dual stories of our bushmen and brumbies and how they both must leave the land. The respect Luke and Adam gave the brumbies was admirable, the respect you as filmmakers gave the story and it's truth is commendable.
Just got home from The Cameo in Belgrave. Wow. We have horses but even if we didn't, we still would have been equally as moved by this story. Thankyou. Thankyou for caring about our beautiful Brumbies, and thankyou in particular to the men who went above and beyond to save that mare when she had given up. The love you have for these magical creatures was evident in every heart wrenching step. Well done.
If you claim to be interested in the environment or animals you really should make an effort and have a look at this wonderful documentary. Impressive.
Thanks guys for producing such an honest doco/film which has, as you say, started a conversation. I found it was a well balanced presentation on the plight of the brumbies, yet not answering the question - therefore letting the viewer make up their own mind.
Having a personal experience with Pack Saddlers and hearing the valley spoken about as folklore (for years before I had the pleasure of visiting), I was moved emotionally by the story. Not just the plight of the horses, but the passing down of the traditions from father to son and Luke's connection to the land in a spiritual way. My eyes were glued to the screen.
Thanks to Russell and Amy for the Q&A after the show. Well worth the drive of 1.5 hours to see the movie (from Coffs Harbour to South West Rocks).
What a wonderful thought provoking Aussie film!!! Some true Aussie heros and a must see.
