“Monumental. An anthropological work of art.”—Cinema Scope

One of the discoveries of the 2009 New York Film Festival, this unforgettable documentary follows modern cowboys as they drive thousands of sheep through Montana’s Beartooth Mountains on their way to market. The romance of the scenario and setting quickly gives way to the difficult demands of the task at hand. Amid the overwhelming beauty and arduousness, the film shares the sheepherders’ sharp sense of humor and poignant humanity. (101 mins., 35mm)
