THE DREAM (Spain, 2008)  Director: Christopher Farnarier

 El Somni

A man seems to be walking in front of his flock of sheep since the beginning of time, following the pattern of the seasons.  The migrating shepherd belongs to our collective imagery.  Joan “Pipa” is one of the last members of an age-long tradition.  We accompany him on his last trip on the move to new pastures on the Catalan Pyrenees. Day after day we share his intimacy and we discover the past and present of a man who loves his job and who is happy to enjoy a lifestyle of freedom within nature.  However, land abandonment, industrialization and uncontrolled urban growth, new infrastructures and now climate change have put an end to the dream and are leading us towards an uncertain future.  The disappearance of transhumance is a symbol of progress or can we take it as a symbol of our civilization's demise?
