Director MARCEL BARRENA (Spain 2022) 73 min
This delightful family-friendly documentary introduces us to renowned Catalan wrangler Santi Serra, who has developed a unique equine training program based on forging bonds with animals by learning through play. Serra’s free-range technique builds genuine relationships by creating a common language rooted in trust and friendship. Goya® Award-winning Spanish director Marcel Barrena shows us Serra’s day-to-day life at the farmhouse where he lives among the horses he trains, and where the love between them is palpable. In one particular trip to Morocco he discovers and spontaneously decides to rescue Mabrouk, a malnourished and badly injured horse on the verge of dying. Brother Horse is a story of one man with an exceptional gift for communication and friendship, who pursues a passion that has a lasting impact on both animals and humans.
Born in Barcelona in 1981, MARCEL BARRENA won a Gaudí Award for Cuatro estaciones (2010), his film debut. His other films include 100 Meters (2016) and Mediterraneo: The Law of the Sea (2021).
