Of Girls and Horses

Von Mädchen und Pferden

A teenager struggles in her new environment when she is forced into an internship at a rural horse farm. She tentatively bonds with her boss before attempting a relationship with a client who stables her horses at the farm.

German filmmaker Monika Treut has written, directed, and produced more than 20 award-winning independent features and documentaries. Widely acclaimed for her audacious vision, she has been honored with retrospectives in Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Taipei, Toronto, Prague, Warsaw, Athens, Los Angeles, and many other cities, and has taught at prestigious universities  around the world.

“Treut’s transgressive brand of filmmaking is a much needed intervention into the arena of sexual politics. Her misbehaving women are a vital form of resistance.” —Sight and Sound
