Of_horses_and_men

Ventnor Film Society presents Of Horses and Men

These six interlocking tales of the unique Icelandic horses and the people who live and work with them are beautifully filmed against the stunning, frozen landscape of a Nordic valley.

Through the eyes of the simple, dignified horses, we observe the chaotic, often comic lives of these eccentric villagers.

Now enjoying cult status, this is a love story about the close relationship that exists between man and horse in this remote location.

It is essential to reserve a seat by emailing ventnorfilmsociety@hotmail.com.

Screenings take place on alternate Tuesdays at 7.30pm and latecomers are not admitted.

Entrance is £5 payable at the door and is not necessary to be a member of the Arts Club to attend.
