Jannes Callens

Bistrita, Romania | 2021 | 53 | DCP

A cinematic and existential encounter between Belgian-Romanian Stefan Gota and a group of young shepherds. Gota returns to his native Romania to make a fresh start as a shepherd. Jannes Callens’s film moves at the same pace as a pasture crossing, between expedition, pause, and contemplation. Striking images of this profession merge with existential considerations. How can you guide a flock when you’re a little lost yourself?
