Grey Horse

Samuel Grey Horse, an Indigenous equestrian from Austin, Texas, is known for rescuing horses from being put down. After a riding accident lands him in a coma, Grey Horse experiences an afterlife vision that changes his perspective on the world and his place in it.


Directed by Emil Lozada

After spending his early years growing up in South West England, Emil moved to London to pursue a career in filmmaking in 2012. He worked in various roles and departments as an AC, camera technician, editor and eventually found his footing as a director/DP. After being in a long-distance relationship for 4 years, in 2020 he got married and moved to Austin, Texas to be with his wife, Arnelle. Having directed a number of short documentaries for environmental organization Re:wild, his work explores our rapidly changing world and climate crisis, with stories about global warming, endangered wildlife, in addition to social films driven by human subjects. His most recent short ‘Grey Horse’ follows the life of an indigenous equestrian who discovers a new perspective on the world after a life-changing accident. Alongside filmmaking, Emil curates and hosts a monthly film night in South Austin, screening blocks of local shorts as well as feature documentaries, arthouse and world-cinema films. He plans to move towards directing documentary features in the near future as well as pursuing narrative shorts.
