PLOT SUMMARY

Filmed in six countries during fifteen years , “The Last Transhumance” takes us into the world of shepherds who walk with their animals very long distances in search for food: an ancient way of life not compatible with the modern world.

QUOTES

About shepherds who still practice transhumance:
They sleep together with the sheep all the time, either summer or winter, near the herd, in order to protect the flock against wolves and bears attacks.
During the trip, everything they own is loaded in the morning and unloaded in the evening on donkeys’ backs.
They live only under the open sky regardless of the season.
They always get up in the morning long before sunrise.
