Ainda Há Pastores

2006 | Portugal | Doc | 72min

There are places that are almost nonexistent. There is no electric light, running water or roads. Sometime ago it was a sanctuary for shepherds ... Today the elders are dying and the younger ones escape the harsh fate of being a shepherd. Hermínio, 27 years, is an exception. He`s the youngster pastor, but also the craziest. Alone, radio in hand, going around the mountains listening to his tapes of folk singer Quim Barreiros, he dreams he`ll meet one day. Until when will Hermínio be a shepherd? But ... are there still shepherds?

Over 7 years, this discussion among the inhabitants will be critical not only to this small community, but to understand how Portugal traces its path.
