THE LAST SHEPHERD (L’ULTIMO PASTORE) (Italy, 2012, 76 min.)

Shown as part of Our Cities, Our Planet

Washington, D.C. Premiere Renato Zucchelli is the last man to tend sheep in the region of Lombardy, an area increasingly overrun by urban sprawl. Although blessed with family and friends, Renato has a dream: to introduce the children of Milan to the all-but-forgotten joys of his profession. Renato brings his flock to the center of the city, where he encounters busy streets and espresso stands unprepared for their arrival. Funny, touching and thought-provoking, The Last Shepherd is a warm, endearing portrait of a man who conquers a city with nothing more than the power of imagination. Directed by Marco Bonfanti.

Introduced by Renato Miracco, Cultural Attaché, Embassy of Italy.
