SYNOPSIS

Wolf and Sheep follows two 11-year-old outsiders Sediqa and Qodrat who help watch the village flocks. Everyday they, along with the other children of the village, take the sheep and goats up the mountain to graze where they gossip and practice their slingshots to keep away the wolves. An incredible feat of filmmaking by Afghanistan’s first female feature director, Shahrbanoo Sadat shot the film across the border in Tajikistan to ensure the safety of her crew. Blending documentary and fiction filmmaking styles, the story weaves magical realism (a shape-changing green fairy who metes out justice to cruel people) with a fresh representation of life in Afghanistan.
