image from the film SWEETGRASS

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.

“A graceful and often moving meditation on a disappearing way of life, there is little here that is objective and much that is magnificent.” (NY Times)

Shown in a new restoration.
