RAMS

Wednesday 1 March 7.45pm, Swindon Arts Centre

Iceland | 2015 | 90 mins | Cert 15
In a quiet valley, two feuding brothers are rearing flocks of sheep, their estrangement broken occasionally, when they send each other messages via sheep or shotgun. When disease comes to the valley and threatens their livestock, they put aside their differences, and hostility makes way for collaboration for a greater common goal, which leads to a very unexpected outcome.
