“The Last Horsemen of New York,” a new documentary, follows the story of the New York City carriage drivers fighting to save their industry. The drivers, who are members of the Teamsters Union, have been battling powerful interests trying to do away with their jobs.
The film follows carriage industry spokespeople Christina Hansen and Stephen Malone, both members of Local 553, in their day-to-day struggle to fend off extinction. Leading the charge for the carriages in the media is well known actor and New York resident Liam Neeson.
As the fight unfolds, a much broader story emerges about powerful interests against the common man and the role of secret unaccountable money that corrupts the political system.
