Hiver Nomade/Winter Nomads (2012, 90 min.) by Manuel von Stürler

Join the Swiss team for an evening of film, wine and cheese!

Featuring the winner for Best Documentary at the 2012 European Film Festival, Hiver nomade keeps away from chocolate, clock or bank to track the progresses of 800 sheep, 4 dogs, 3 donkeys and 2 human beings, Carole et Pascale, as they embark on the seasonal transhumance from the mountains to the lowlands. An adventure film at the heart of a territory undergoing a radical transformation...

Swiss wine and cheese served after the screening.

Carole et Pascal partent pour la transhumance d'hiver avec trois ânes, quatres chiens et huit cents moutons, bravant le froid et la neige, avec pour seul abri nocturne des peaux animales. Un film d'aventure au cœur d'un territoire qui subit des transformations radicales.

La projection sera suivie par une dégustation de vins et fromages suisses.
