Shepherd's Song

21 mins


When Jenya Schneider lost both her parents by age 18, she was pushed to find meaning and hope in her life. That came in the form of a flock of sheep. Schneider now grazes her motley crew of 400 ewes and lambs on the mountainous terrain of Central California’s grasslands. By grazing in a way that mimics the patterns of nature, the sheep prevent devastating wildfires and help to restore degraded ecosystems.

Shepherd’s Song is one of four films funded through The North Face Move Mountains Filmmakers Grant program, an initiative designed to empower and enable women filmmakers in the film industry.
