will premiere at the Terrace Theatre, with a portion of ticket sales going to benefit Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding. Buy tickets for a screening here.
tells the true story of Dream Alliance, a Welsh racing horse from Cefn Fforest (yes, it's spelled like that), one of the poorest mining valleys in Wales. In 2009 Dream Alliance went on to win the Welsh Grand National to the astonishment of the racing elite. Dark Horse
won the audience award for World Cinema Documentary at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and the Washington Post has called the film a “lovable documentary” that is “earnest, sweet and told with sentimentality.”
A portion of ticket sales from June 24 to June 26 will be donated to Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding (CATR), a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of children and adults with disabilities through riding and interacting with horses. CATR’s professional instructors and well-trained horses are dedicated to helping individuals with diseases such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and post-traumatic stress disorder experience movement, build confidence and strength, and gain new skills.
