A perfect harmony of man, animals and nature! Dutch Premiere


In a timeless mountainous rocky landscape resembling the beginning of the creation, a shepherd communicates with his goats and sheep. Twenty or so different cries, screams, chirps, babbles, mumbles, whispers, whistles and other sounds uttered, to a human ear might be an incomprehensible cacophony, but for the herd they stand for a sign of agreement, a system, a language, a rhythmic sermon and a melody they look forward, understand and obey… Perovic is one of the biggest names of the documentary cinema of Montenegro and is known for his lyrical, visually superb cinematic meditations. His creative documentaries, screened at the festivals worldwide, won 94 awards so far.

Een perfecte harmonie tussen mens, dier en natuur!


In een tijdloos bergachtig, rotsachtig landschap communiceert een herder met zijn geiten en schapen. Hij schreeuwt, piept, brabbelt, mompelt, fluistert en fluit. Voor het menselijk oor een onbegrijpelijke kakofonie aan geluiden, maar voor de kudde niet: voor de dieren zijn de kreten een blijk van overeenkomst, een systeem, een taal, een ritmische preek en een melodie. Ze luisteren ernaar, begrijpen het en gehoorzamen… Perovic is één van de grootste namen in de documentairefilmwereld van Montenegro en staat bekend om zijn lyrische, visueel prachtige filmische beschouwingen. Zijn creatieve documentaires zijn vertoond op festivals over de hele wereld en hij won tot nu toe al 94 prijzen.
