Upcoming screenings for The Man from Coxs River

Luke Carlon grew up taking tourists on horse trips along the Cox’s river, a place his family has ridden since the 1820’s. Everyone came to ride along this pristine valley for up to a week including the rich and famous. All that ended  nearly 20 years when the river was declared a wilderness area, the business closed and Luke’s father died.

After a long history of difficult relations between the National Parks and the Carlons, a thoughtful National Parks  Ranger Chris Banffy has a problem he thinks Luke might be able to solve. A wiley mob of brumbies (wild horses) inhabit the  Burragorang valley, a water catchment area sealed off to the general public for over fifty years. Classed as feral pests, National Parks head office needs Chris to remove the animals from Sydney’s water supply without any of the outcry that has marred some previous control operations using  shooters in helicopters.  Unlike any other horse relocation program in Australia the only access to the trap-yards is either by helicopter or horseback.
If Luke takes the job he will have to find the horses, get them in the trap  then he’ll have to break them in enough to lead them a bone crunching 5 km up to another set of yards with truck access.

Can Luke prove himself to the ghosts of his past  and lead the horses to safety and a new home with out injuring them or his crew of dedicated stockmen? Can Ranger Chris make Luke stick to the rules?  Can Luke and Chris learn to work together and see the world through the each others eyes?
