Come to see Sweetgrass this Friday, July 23rd 2010 – Sunday, July 25th 2010 at the Harris Theater.
For just $7.00, you can experience what Kenneth Turan from LATimes calls, “Unexpectedly intoxicating”
An unsentimental elegy to the American West, Sweetgrass is a riveting portrait of a dying way of life. It follows the last of the modern-day cowboys as they lead their flocks of some 3,000 sheep up into Montana’s breathtaking, dangerous mountains for summer pasture. This astonishingly beautiful yet unsparing film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence, are all intimately connected.
