Watch: First Trailer for Award-Winning 'Dark Horse' Sundance Doc
"How can that possibly be a success?" This looks great! Coming out of Sundance this year were a number of outstanding documentaries (our 7 favorites here), including this one, which picked up the Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary category. Dark Horse is a documentary about a small Welsh town that decides to adopt and breed a racehorse even though they don't have much money. Lo and behold it goes on to become a huge success, and this is the story of that horse and the town. This is one film we didn't get to see, but heard nothing but amazing things about during the festival. This first trailer definitely gives us a glimpse at just how crowdpleasing and inspiring it is, and I'm looking forward to seeing it sooner than later.
Louise Osmond's documentary, titled in full Dark Horse: The Incredible True Story Of Dream Alliance, is the inspirational true story of a group of friends from a working men's club who take on the elite 'sport of kings' and breed themselves a racehorse. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it won the Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary category. The film comes out of the UK and will be released first over there. Film4 will release Dark Horse: The Incredible True Story Of Dream Alliance in the UK and Ireland starting April 17th, 2015. Sony Pictures Classics will release in the US, but no date has been set yet. For extra info, follow the film on Facebook. Stay tuned for more updates.

I'm pretty down for this. Should be an interesting look at weird breeding and that's just the gentry who own the horses. We will hear these stories less and less in the future, unless it's in a Disney film.

So interesting...I don't condone horse racing, as it is seems to treat the horses kind of badly. But this documentary seems very well done.
