VOICES: Penny and Red: The Life of Secretariat's Owner
USA, 2013, 60 Minute Running Time
Q&A with director Beret Strong, Penny Chenery & Kate Tweedy
From her parents' climb out of poverty to her own emergence as the 'First Lady of Racing,' Penny Chenery’s life has been fueled by the love of horses. Forever paired with the great racehorse Secretariat, Penny’s personal story also exemplifies the rise and sacrifices of women of her generation. The woman who emerges from this surprisingly candid documentary is no Disney princess. Yet Penny’s unstinting reflection on her life of caged ambition, suddenly liberated by a horse of transcendent power, still gives off a shimmer of grace.
