An unsentimental elegy to the American West, Sweetgrass is a sensorial evocation of the lives of the last sheepherders to drive their flocks up into Montana’s Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. Devoid of all commentary, this astonishingly beautiful yet unsparing non-fiction film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, climate and landscape, and vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed.
