Rupert Isaacson was born in London to a South African mother and a Zimbabwean father. He is the founding director of the Indigenous Land Rights Fund, a non-profit organization that helps threatened and displaced indigenous tribes obtain tenure of their ancestral land.

Rupert is the author of the best-selling book and the producer of the award-winning film “The Horse Boy”.

"The Horse Boy" is the story of a father and mother, on a mission of love for their son - Rowan. They journeyed across the vast, wild landscape of Mongolia. The story delves into the strange world of autism itself, the relationship between humans and animals and between different cultures and different ways of being (autistic vs. normal, or "neuro-typical"), and the nature of healing.
