"The movie truly belongs to the sheep, which turn out to be fascinating, almost hypnotic subjects for the camera..." - Manohla Dargis, New York Times
An unsentimental elegy to the American West, SWEETGRASS follows the last modern-day cowboys to lead their flocks of sheep up into Montana's breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. This astonishingly beautiful film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed.

We are very lucky to have this record ofthis. Mind boggleing scenic vistas, and closeup and personal detail, weave a rough and raw tapestry of this way of life. The audio track is pure open mic. no narration, no music, just the sounds of the sheep,dogs, people, and horses. The Absaroka-Beartooth wilderness does have actual Bears, and they eat a sheep or two before they're drven off with gunfire. These are truly precious images. I heartily recommend this film!
