Synopsis: On the margins of modern medicine, horses are being used in psychotherapy. Inspired by three months of anthropological fieldwork, the film takes a closer look at one such place in the Pacific Northwest, called Animals as Natural Therapy. Through the stories of three women, “Healing Horses’ explores aspects of the healing relationships created between humans and horses.
Born and Raised in Romania and educated in anthropology and film in Scotland and Denmark, Armina Dinescu is on a quest to explore the multi-sensorial and the therapeutic dimensions of video, with a focus on the interaction between humans and non-humans (including animals, plants, trees and the sky).
