FilmSHEPHERD looks at the life of Sardinian shepherds, their flocks on snow-covered hills, and the production of cheese, where human hands play an important role. An interest in authentic reality and the resultant rejection of conventional filmic poetry combine to create a portrait of a life unchanged for centuries.
