Speaking of sheep today… I just remembered a great film where flocks of sheep play an important part in one man’s life.
The film is called Tulpan, it’s about my home country, Kazakhstan. It is beautifully made and well worth seeing:
- Winner of the Prix Un Certain Regard at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival*
- Kazakhstan’s 2009 Academy Awards official submission for the Foreign-Language Film category
- Winner, Best Feature Film, at the 2008 Montreal Festival of New Cinema
A fun fact: my aunt actually went to school with the director of this movie! How cool is that?
