Lewes Film ClubTwo brothers who haven't spoken in 40 years feud over rams in rural Iceland. Elderly brothers Gummi and Kiddi farm next door to each other in a bleak Icelandic landscape. With no women in their lives, and no one for company apart from their sheep, the estranged brothers send messages to each via their sheepdog. But when the lethal disease scrapie breaks out in their valley, all herds are culled, leaving the brothers to save their industry from extinction. A dark comedy, hilarious and emotional – deadpan Icelandic humour.
