A thrilling documentary following nomadic Anatolian herders as they ford racing rivers and climb treacherous mountains in search of new pasturelands. It's easy to see how these two directors would later go on to make KING KONG.
A special screening of classic silent short 16 mm films interspersed with "Soundies," campy and risqué 1940s prototypes of today's music videos.
