War Horse
England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company become breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
