Audrey of the Alps - Becoming a Sheepherder

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Audrey Douville left her suburban home at 16 to pursue farming. Now as a young woman, and accompanied by her boyfriend Maxime, she undertakes five months of isolated living high in the French Alps.. Living is basic: Audrey and Maxime wash in buckets and heat water on gas stove tops. Whilst their first shepherd's cabin has car access, which they use to journey down to the nearest town once in awhile for supplies, the other cabins are a long walk from the road. It’s a simple existence.. Leading their flock of 1700 sheep over common pastures for a summer season, Audrey is largely unprepared for what happens. Her romantic sojourn in the mountains becomes a struggle to deal with physical hardship, the cruelties of peasant-style farming, and conflicts with her partner. Join Audrey on a personal journey through the French Alps as she strives to come to grips with life as a farmer.. AWARDS Nominated for the Foxtel Australian Documentary Prize, Sydney International Film Festival 2013 Winner Outstanding New Australian Documentary Talent, First Factual Film Festival (F4) Awards 2013 Nominated for Best Foreign Documentary, St. Tropez International Film Festival 2013 Winner Best Direction in a Documentary Feature, Australian Directors Guild Awards 2013.
