East and West was made for DisConnect: a Conflict of Casualties, a showcase of fashion films by thefashioncollective.ca.

The idea for East and West grew out of Bayan Peterson-Sereda's horsemanship and a short discussion we had on the layered relationship between rider and horse.. In the digital age it is hard not to be moved by seeing this ancient companionship continue.
