Somewhere between documentary and fiction sits this absorbing tale from Afghani director Shahrbanoo Sadat. Winner of the Directors’ Fortnight Art Cinema prize at the Cannes Film Festival, WOLF AND SHEEP explores the surprising world of child goat-herders on the hillsides of rural Afghanistan. Inspired in part by the director’s own experiences growing up in a shepherd village and the folklore stories shared amongst gossiping children, reality is blurred when the tales of folklore come to life and a wolf is transformed into a green fairy who can be seen walking through the villages at night. These magic realist moments in the film are interwoven through an otherwise ethnographic style docudrama. “It's a powerful but never sensationalist portrait, wonderfully performed by non-professional actors.” Jason Di Rosso, ABC Radio National.
