Winter Nomads (90 minutes)
Director: Manuel von Sturler
Switzerland 2012

Over the course of several months, shepherds Carole and Pascal trek through the wintry border region of Switzerland and France with 3 donkeys, 4 dogs and 800 sheep, in search of nourishing grasslands. A remarkable road movie which reveals how rural areas are getting snapped up by the modern world and the consequences of it. Each year, the journey gets more complicated with grasslands engulfed in more and more housing developments. Captivating cinematography of a diminishing landscape.
