Phil Baribeau, who worked as a camera operator on the series “Mountain Men,” is making his directorial debut with the award-winning adventure documentary, “Unbranded.”
“Unbranded” follows the 3,000 mile journey of recent college graduates Ben Masters, Thomas Glover, Jonny Fitzsimons and Ben Thamer as they travel from Mexico through Western America and up to Canada with 16 mustangs. The four friends wanted to inspire adoptions of the 50,000 wild horses that live in holding pens in the American West and to draw attention to the fragile ecosystem there. The documentary follows their five-and-a-half month trip through Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana in places like Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Glacier National Park.
Gravitas Ventures will release the documentary in theaters nationwide and on VOD starting September 25. Check out the exclusive poster below.
