Wolf and Sheep
Introduction

Denmark, France, Sweden, Afganistan / 2016 / 86 min
Director:Shahrbnoo SADAT

In an isolated village at the foot of the mountains in central Afghanistan, the villagers make up stories suffused with mystery and imagination to explain the world in which they live. As they help adults in their work the children do impersonations of the adults, swearing and gossiping like them. Young boys and girls are not allowed to mingle at social events, but Sediqua and Qodrat, who are both black sheep in their clans, break with tradition and begin a beautiful friendship. The film is the semi-autobiographical first feature of Afghani Director, Shahrbanoo SADAT. It had its world premiere in the Director’s Fortnight at Cannes in 2016. SADAT depicts the traditional lifestyles of the villagers in the desolate landscape surrounding the village but transforms the everyday struggles into a magic realist fairy-tale vision which grows from the unique cultural soil of Afghanistan.
