Prize list - European Film Awards 2012
Winner of the Grand Prize SSA/Suissimage for the best Swiss feature film (all sections) at Visions du Réel 2012, HIVER NOMADE thus illustrates the springboard role of the festival.
Pascal and Carole, with 3 donkeys, 4 dogs and 800 sheep, drive over 600km, braving snow, main roads, villages and fiercely defended private estates.
The shepherds are constantly on the look-out, and there is little respite: this occupation certainly is no job for any Tom, Dick and Harry.
In movie theaters now!
