WORKHORSE

2020 | 82 min. | Dir. Cliff Caines


Synopsis

A portrait of horsepower in extremis. Equal parts elegy and essay, Workhorse follows three present-day teamsters over the course of a year as they contemplate the future of horse-powered labour. Formally composed and precisely framed, the film reflects on our lasting relationship with horses as living machines once bred to work and now relegated to perform.
