Academy Award®winning actor and filmmaker Kevin Costner (Stan Exclusive series Yellowstone) directs the epic feature Horizon: An American Saga which recently made its world premiere debut at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival, receiving a rapturous response from the audience with an eleven-minute standing ovation. ​ ​

Horizon: An American Saga explores the lure of the Old West and how it was won—and lost—through the blood, sweat and tears of many. Spanning the four years of the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, Costner’s ambitious cinematic adventure will take audiences on an emotional journey across a country at war with itself, experienced through the lens of families, friends and foes all attempting to discover what it truly means to be the United States of America.

Horizon: An American Saga is a deeply personal project for Costner who directs, stars in the film, which he also produced and co-wrote.

Costner said: “I have a giant love for my movies and what they can be. I was interested in the story that I wanted to tell. I put on the hat of being a financier, using my own money, mortgaging my own property, taking that risk to follow my own dream.”
