Interview Manuel von Stürler (HIVER NOMADE)

Uploaded on Tuesday 13 November 2012


Pascal and Carole are two shepherds devoted to transhumance: the former is older and more expert, the latter is a young and enthusiastic apprentice learning this ancient job characterized by an ancestral wisdom. They lead their flock for 600 kilometers through the pastures of French Switzerland. The film follows this long journey, thus giving spectators the opportunity to get into a microcosm where time passes by at a different pace and which is regulated by the ancient laws of sheep farming, which have nothing to do with the merciless techniques of intensive farming.
