CAN a mission to save a mob of doomed brumbies in inaccessible Blue Mountains wilderness bring a fiercely independent horseman and a feral control National Parks ranger to see the world through each other's eyes?
Special guests will get to find out the answer to that question when director Russell Kilbey and producer Amy Scully present a preview screening of their documentary ‘The Man From Coxs River’ at the Mount Vic flicks tomorrow.
Four and a half years in the making, the film tells the story of Coxs River local Luke Carlon and a NPWS ranger Chris Banffy as they try to round up a mob of wild horses who inhabit the restricted Sydney Water catchment area of the Burragorang Valley.
Mr Kilbey describes the 84 minute film as an odd couple movie that investigates wilderness management, heritage and the call of the wild.
He plans to send it off to film festivals and to hopefully have it picked up so it can be shown to the public on television or at cinemas.
“We have made a unique film that would not have been made if a big broadcaster had been involved. Its really special,” Mr Kilbey said.
