Still image from the film The Living Fire
With the arrival of spring, the highland shepherds of Ukraine set off with their flocks on a lonely journey lasting several months. Set in the breathtaking Carpathian Mountains, The Living Fire is a captivating story of three shepherds, each at a different stage in life. Inhabiting a world bound by tradition, they reflect on the meaning of their own existence as the contemporary world begins to encroach on their remote community. In Ukrainian with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
