This film follows a nomadic tribe in Turkey for four seasons. In spring, they take their sheep and goats from their village up the mountain to spend the summer there.
Kazım Öz’s soothing documentary portrays the cyclical life of nomads in Southeastern Turkey, melding compelling humor with an intimate humanity. A stirring testament to tradition and the endurance of rural life, the film uses brutal, poetic imagery to juxtapose human and animal existence.
