Tierra del Fuego (Land of fire)
Land of fire – The sheep from the end of the world
In the land of fire, at the south-end of America. Plain and forest everywhere. Some farms where thousand of sheep are raised for their wool. Every year, during the mowing, the shepherd goes through the fields to push the sheep to the central farm. On horses, walking with their dogs, they’re going on an invisible line, identifying the yelling from the others. In the barn, the motors and the gears move the blades to mow the sheep.
