SWEETGRASS – NEW RESTORATION
Available to your home theater through the Olympia Film Society
Streaming tickets now available!

A New Digital Restoration! An unsentimental elegy to the American West, Sweetgrass follows the last modern-day cowboys to lead their flocks of sheep up into Montana’s breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. This astonishingly beautiful yet unsparing film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed.
Dir: Ilisa Barbash, Lucien Castaing-Taylor / 2009 / US / 101 min

“The images, including sheep on the move up near vertical hills, are remarkable, the landscape spectacular, the unsentimental account of back-breaking, backside-aching work impressive.” — Philip French, Guardian

“It would be foolish not to experience this film.” — Dominic Radcliffe, Little White Lies

“Strange to relate that one of the year’s most striking cinematic experiences so far is a documentary starring 3,000 sheep.” — Kieron Corless, Sight and Sound
