Description

On the remote Icelandic coast sits a sheep farm tended to by a husband and wife who have lived off the land for years, but have decided that this will be the last season they spend with their shimmying, braying herd. With intimate attention to the couple’s routine, the landscape, and the well-loved animals that inhabit it, director Yrsa Roca Fannberg patiently observes the rhythm of this isolated homestead, one that cannot keep up with impending change, heralded through the radio that broadcasts the news during each meal.
