Shepherds in the Cave
Documentary directed and produced by Anthony Grieco with support from Canada Council for the Arts.
An international team of art restorers, archaeologists and volunteers begin work on the restoration of religious frescoes inside a network of ancient caves. Faced with local bureaucratic challenges and systemic neglect of archeological sites, the team encounters a community of shepherds and migrants that have used the caves for centuries and discover a living culture worth preserving most of all.
The film has been selected to screen at the Royal Anthropological Institute – RAI Film Festival, for the Archaeology and Material Culture Film category. The film festival takes place in Bristol, UK, from March 29th to April 1st 2017.
