"There was no inspiration for the film, apart from the moment itself. I was at Newbury, filming the protests and the evictions on a Hi8 Camcorder. Very early one february morning, I found myself in a field with over 500 security guards and police, they had surrounded a small copse and a couple of huge, old oak trees and were preparing to chop them down. They had successfully outwitted the protesters. In the chaos accompanying the operation, some hedges and fences had been destroyed and these two horses were roaming virtually free. As the chainsaws started, they didnt run away as you'd expect, but towards the felling.. I just grabbed the camcorder and started filming, nothing was staged, the whole episode only lasted a few minutes, but had quite a profound effect on everyone there. Even the police were dumbfounded, especially by the 'confrontation' between the 'wild' horse and the police horse"
