From the Heart of the World

This impressive debut film takes the day-to-day pulse of a family of sheep and cattle nomads as they drive their herds across the steppes in an annual cycle of search for water and grass. The director lived with the family for several weeks until they got used to the camera. Much more than just an ethnographic document, <i>Paradise</i> excels because of its refined use of sound and its precise editing pace.
