Abstract:

Every summer for hundreds of years, the Basque shepherds of Santazi have herded their sheep up to the high pastures in the Pyrenees. But now their way of life is threatened. Change has come to the village along the avenues of introduced roads and improved communication systems with the outside world. The effects stretch from people's relationship with the Catholic religion to inheritance customs; television has also entered the villagers' homes; and the traditional life of shepherding is changing amid the conflict of interest between those who have formed a syndication to maintain the viability of shepherding and the sons who have taken jobs as linemen for the electricity company. Following the lives of two Basque families through the seasons of a year of such change, this film shows the rationale behind the choices the villagers are making.
