Winner of the top prize at Cannes Directors' Fortnight 2016, Wolf and Sheep is set in rural
Afghanistan, where simple village life is enlivened with stories of mystery and imagination. Our view into this timeless community is through its children, who mimic the adults in their gossiping and lewd language. Boys and girls don't mix but outsiders Qodrat and Sediqa defy the rules and develop a beautiful friendship. Using a cast of non-actors, Sadat has created a unique view of Afghanistan replete with all the mundanities and difficulties of life, but also with myth and magic.
