Dir. Ilisa Barbash & Lucien Castaing-Taylor (2009).
Two Ivy League ethno-documentarians spent three summers in Big Sky country pondering the process by which sheep are raised, ranched, and sheered, and mainly driven (hundreds of miles) to pasture. The mode is observational; the movie is routinely awe-inspiring, as well as hilariously weird. See this and you’ll now why they call them “sheep.”
