byronic - My second day at the Berlinale



The highlight of the day was undoubtedly WINTER NOMADS, a Swiss film about transhumance - the ancient shepherding practice of walking sheep across land to graze on whatever's left from the harvest season. Its charismatic protagonists (two shepherds, three donkeys, four dogs and eight hundred sheep!) make it a very enjoyable journey, which leads the viewer to consider the relationship between tradition and modernity, man and beast, landscape and ritual. It's a delightful, lovely, touching film.
