Bosnian Mountain Horse


This film project is a fieldwork investigation around the story and meaning of a horse breed in Bosnia and Herzegovina. For two weeks I have been travelling on the tracks of the Bosnian mountain horse, visiting relevant places and talking to people that are related to this topic in the most diverse ways. It is a story about the strongly bounded relationship between a culture, nation and an animal, that today finds itself on a very disoriented turning point. Some call it a treasure which is about to be lost, some give all they have to preserve it, others release it into the wild so it can take care of itself.
In the end it opens up questions about the role of the pure breed, its imbrutement and who this might be relevant for, or not.
The film will be coming out in summer 2016.
