The Award-Winning documentary "Somehow Hopeful" delves into the timeless bond between humans and horses, celebrating the critical relationship between humanity and nature. Rather than pursuing profit-driven exploitation, the film highlights the endeavor to restore and safeguard forested lands, promoting a culture of environmental consciousness.
Through an enchanting twist of fate, the introduction of a rare horse breed into Jason's life sparks a profound understanding of the natural world and reveals a sustainable approach to meeting human needs while safeguarding our most precious environmental assets. Jason's thoughtful, compassionate, and insightful techniques are now gaining recognition worldwide as people increasingly prioritize the protection of our planet's environmental heritage.
“Somehow Hopeful meticulously captures Jason’s eloquence when talking about the woods, horses and people he’s known. But it does much more. Through his artful videography, McNutt puts us in the woods. We fly along a stream coursing through the woods as a heron might, seeing with our own eyes the important harmony of the woods. Circling high above, we watch as a tree is felled with precision to land carefully, with little damage to itself or the trees around it.” - Joe Mischka, Rural Heritage
