Storyline

A prequel to the 1979 classic The Black Stallion--a family drama that presents the horse's adventures with a young girl named Neera, who has been separated from her father in Arabia by WWII. Left alone in the desert, she befriends the wild colt whom she names Shetan. Once reunited with her father, however, Neera remains haunted by the images of the lost horse in the desert--one of a few stallions of legend, rumored to be born of the sands, sired by the night sky, drinkers of the wind. Written by Sujit R. Varma

A breathtaking girl & horse movie in the Arabian Desert
7 August 2017 | by Amakoa AkanaSee all my reviews

I love this short movie. Its a simple girl and horse film but special. A girl lost in the desert finds a young colt. They become friends as they wander. . . Patriarchal standards block her potential.

So, how is it special?

First, the cinematography in the desert is awe-inspiring, heart- heartbreakingly beautiful. Second, Biana Tamimi (Neera), who is not an actress, but an equestrian, is a joy to watch. I enjoy her amateurish acting and girlish enthusiasm. Third, The costumes are beautiful, even if I have no idea if they are authentic. Neera's hijab even looks beautiful. Fourth, the villains, especially the one in the black beard, are villainously delightful. And last, The race course is the most difficult I've seen on film and the horse race the toughest I have ever seen, made especially heart-stopping because we know the stakes for Neera.

I agree with other reviewers that the film seemed too short. I could have easily watched more of Neera wandering through the desert looking for water, and more training in her secret valley.
