Visions du Réel On Tour presents a special screening at cinema Rex in Fribourg on Thursday November 1st, 2012, 6pm. Members of the film crew and the director of the festival, Luciano Barisone will be present for a debate.
The film WINTER NOMADS (Hiver Nomade) shows how Pascal and Carole, with three donkeys and four dogs, drive 800 sheep over a distance of 600 kilometres, braving snow, main roads and fiercely defended private estates, as well as friendly villages. The environment is extremely tough, but for the two shepherds and for the viewer, this is a fascinating modern adventure.
