Fuori dal gregge (Out of the Flock)
BRA-Cinema Vittoria – Via Cavour, 20
The life of transhumant pastoralists in Lombardy. They are on Bergamo and Brescia mountains in winter, and on Cremonese and Mantovano hills in spring. Theirs is a life of night walks, uphill to alpine pastures and downhill towards meadows surrounded by industrial buildings and car roads. They have a close relationship with their sheep. They share the fatigue of temporary accommodation, blasphemy against bad weathers, and laws that don’t protect them. But above all, they strictly defend their inherited or purchased lands, against the abuse from other shepherds and the slow disappearance of a thousand-year-old tradition.
Directors: Michela Barzanò, Emanuele Cucca e Cristina Meneguzzo
