BFF 2014: “Pastores de la niebla”/ “Herders of the mist”

“Pastores de la niebla”/ “Herders of the mist”, Spain, 2013, Domingo Moreno, 55’

Amid the mists and alongside the waves of the Cantabrian Sea rise the Picos de Europa, the first National Park to be created in Spain. This is protected landscape, shaped by herders and their herds. A paradigm of what is happening on other mountains, the few herders who still inhabit the folds feel themselves to be an endangered species. In the twilight of this thousand-year-old culture, experiments are being carried out with herder schools and cheeseries that are compatible with the environment. An attempt is being made to preserve this generational substitution, the countryside and its biodiversity, the indigenous breeds and practices of livestock handling linked to a unique cheese, “Gamonéu del Puerto”.
