The new Documentary of Seventyone Films and Encompass Films follows the Child Jockeys of Sumbawa in Indonesia.

A Film by Michael Niermann



A Co Production Seventyone Films / Encompass Films


„The way to heaven is on horseback.“

An old saying that rings true - unless you are a five-year-old jockey in Indonesia, risking life and limb in every race. For them, it's a horseback ride through hell... Riders of Destiny tells the story of Sila and Firman, two child jockeys living in the impoverished island of Sumbawa, where horse racing with young children is a long-established tradition. The stakes are high, but it’s the riders who pay the price.
