Sweetgrass - The Film

The film documentary Sweetgrass premieres on PBS tonight.

I'll miss it - I don't get PBS because I don't have cable or satellite TV.

I watched the trailer on the internet though. And would dearly love to be able to watch the film someday.

Watch the full episode. See more POV.

It's not too often that documentary films about sheep are created. It's not too often that sheep drives of this magnitude happen anymore. As I understand it, this is one of the reasons for the film in the first place. Sheep ranchers and sheep drives are a dying breed and this film captures the last sheep drive for a Montana ranching family.

But not only is the film about a last epic sheep drive but it would be worth watching for the sake of the dogs in it. Sounds like my dogs have it easy in comparison.

If you happen to watch Sweetgrass or get to see it soon, give me your thoughts on it. Meanwhile I'll be searching out a way to see it myself.

In promotion of Sweetgrass there is also a live chat with the filmmakers taking place tomorrow (July 6). Follow this link to check it out.
