Follows one Texas couple and their autistic son as they trek on horseback through Outer Mongolia in an attempt to find healing for him. When two-year-old Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson, a writer and former horse trainer, and his wife Kristin sought the best possible medical care, but traditional therapies had little effect. They discovered that Rowan has a profound affinity for animals, particularly horses, and the family set off on a quest that would change their lives forever
Der Pferdejunge( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nachdem der fünfjährige Autist Rowan beim Aufsitzen auf ein Pferd plötzlich seine sonst nicht zu kurierenden Wutanfälle verliert, beginnt sein Vater Rupert Recherchen anzustellen, ob es eine Möglichkeit gibt, das Reiten mit spirituellen Heilungsmethoden zu kombinieren. Und er wird fündig - in der Mongolei. Der Pferdejunge ist die einmalig-unglaubliche Geschichte der Issacsons die bis an das Ende der Welt gereist sind, um in das Leben ihres Sohnes zu gelangen. Geprägt von immer wiederkehrenden Rückschlägen, unvorstellbaren Eindrücken von Mensch und Natur und der grenzenlose Liebe eines Vaters ist THE HORSE BOY nicht nur die Geschichte eines kleinen Jungen sondern eine Reise zum spirituellen Kern in uns selbst. Auf dem Rücken der Pferde, in einem Land in dem die Zeit still zu stehen scheint, entdeckt ein Junge seine ganz eigene neue Welt. (Quelle: Umschlag)

"A family takes some very unusual steps to help their son in this documentary from filmmaker Michel Orion Scott. Rupert Isaacson and Kristen Neff first met when they were both traveling through India; Rupert was an activist representing the rights of indigenous peoples in the Third World, while Kristen was a college professor with a degree in psychology. While Rupert and Kristen expected that their nomadic life might change when they married and had a child, they weren't quite prepared for what happened when their son, Rowan Isaacson, was diagnosed with autism. Rowan was given to long periods of sullen withdrawal and sudden bursts of rage that no form of therapy seemed to help, and by the time he was five his parents were running out of ideas when they discovered the boy had a close bond with animals. Rupert discovered a band of shamans in Mongolia who claimed to be able to heal autism, and so he joined Rowan and Kristen for a journey in which they would travel across the country on horseback to meet the holy men who might be able to help the child. Director Scott and a small camera crew joined the family on their voyage, and Over the Hills and Far Away allows viewers to watch as Rupert and Kristen search out a way to help their son connect with the world at large. Over the Hills and Far Away received its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival"--Allmovie.com, viewed August 14, 2018
