  • An unassuming and suitably gentle-paced charmer. show more

  • An exhilarating vérité work by first-timer Manuel von Stürler, the documentary follows this seasonal migration, or transhumance, with a sense of quiet awe and intimacy, capturing the feel of cold rain, deep snow and the comforting heat of a campfire. show more

  • Von Stürler offers raw footage of the four-month trek itself, which is often mesmerizing in its austere beauty; there's no narration, intertitles, or any other authorial hand-holding to trump up the message the images already convey on their own. show more
