‘Notes from Sheepland’ follows lipstick wearing, always swearing, no nonsense, artist and shepherd, Orla Barry. Through her fields, her digital diaries, and the pedigree sheep she cares for, we discover how the art is in the doing.

“Notes from Sheepland has a streak of light, playful wit. There is also something of a lament about the film. What happens in this shepherd’s little corner of Ireland becomes a reflection of global events and challenges for everyone.” Screen Daily
