1993 | David MacDougall | Italy | Unrated
One of two films at this year’s Gathering exploring the lives of Sardinian shepherds, David MacDougall’s poetic ethnography portrays the different experiences of Franchiscu (62), his son Pietro (17) and their friend Miminu (43) who – although being born 20 years apart – are united by ties of family, friendship and common experience. Will Pietro, still a schoolboy, continue the way of life that has been in his family for generations?
And will Miminu and Franchiscu manage to hold onto their heritage as times change in Sardinia?
