This series goes deep into the lives of two shearing gangs who, in April and May each year, tour the region of Extremadura (Spain), to shear as many flocks of sheep as it is possible.
An activity which is a battle against the clock, and where animal care is fundamental to avoid stress. Focus and resistance is key to achieve better results.
Our sheep shearers make the most of their earnings during the sheep shearing season. During these decisive months, they must gain respect from the hiring breeders as well as other shearing gangs who they are competing with.
Documentary and reality
“SHEEP SHEARERS” is not a contest. Unlike reality television, this series will infiltrate and film in documentary style the everyday lives of a group of men who coexist exclusively with sheep for the two months the season lasts. In other words, there will be no fictitious setup: no actors or scripts, and everything will be artifice-free.
