Slated for the EQUUS Film Festival
The feature film, Running Wild, starring starring Sharon Stone, Tommy Flanagan, Jason Lewis, and Dorian Brown Pham, by ESX Entertainment, will make its New York City debut at the EQUUS Film Festival, to be held at the Village East Cinema November 1720, 2016. The film is about the plight of wild mustangs on the range.
Christina Moore is a supporting actor in Running Wild, as well as its co-producer and writer. She developed the script with producer Ali Afshar and writing partner Brian Rudnik. Forrest Lucas is the executive producer; his company, Lucas Oil/Protect the Harvest, provided the film’s financial support.
“[ Running Wild] is a love story; it’s a story of redemption; it’s the magic of the relationship that happens between a human and a horse,” Moore explains. The annual EQUUS Film Festival, founded in 2013 by Lisa Diersen, is the first event of its kind to offer a home to the storytellers of the horse world, with films, documentaries, videos, commercials, and shorts, as well as cultural elements of fine equestrian art and literature.
