Wolf and Sheep. 2016. Afghanistan/Denmark. Directed by Shahrbanoo Sadat. In Dari; English subtitles. 86 min.
Folklore, otherworldly spirits, and a treasured childhood friendship intertwine in Shahrbanoo Sadat’s feature directorial debut, inspired by her own adolescence in an isolated shepherding village in central Afghanistan. This visionary hybrid film, cast with first-time actors, tenderly depicts the budding friendship between a young girl and boy. The softness of the storytelling, beauty of the natural world, and the warmth of stories passed through generations portrays Afghanistan in a way rarely seen by Western audiences. Winner of an Art Cinema Award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight. Courtesy Alpha Violet
