SHEEP HERO (81mins) a documentary by director Ton van Zantvoort premieres – in Dutch competition – @ IDFA 2018

Shepherd Stijn has a romantic world view, but his idealism clashes with the harsh reality of having to be a modern entrepreneur. In this poignant and cinematic documentary we come close to Stijn and his family in their quest to keep the tradition of sheep herding alive. Will his struggle pay off or is he forced to go with the flock?
