Irish Doc ‘Off The Beaten Track’ Selected for Sao Paulo

28th Aug 2012
Irish documentary OFF THE BEATEN TRACK has been officially selected for the prestigious Sao Paulo International Film Festival in Brazil.  The 36th edition displays a panorama of the most important and representative productions in world cinema and will take place from October 19th to November 01st 2012

Directed by Dieter Auner, OFF THE BEATEN TRACK, is a beautifully observed, powerful but gentle documentary about the changing world of shepherds in Transylvania. The film follows Albin, a teenage shepherd from a remote village in Northern Transylvania, over the course of a year as he makes his way through the ever-changing environment where traditions and the slow pace of the shepherds' routine are gradually being replaced by modern values.

The documentary film was produced by Suin Ni Raghallaigh, Dieter Auner, and Cristian Mungiu for Ikandi Productions with support from BSÉ/IFB and Mobra Films. It has been previously selected to screen at festivals in Edinburgh, Rotterdam, Transylvania and Belfast.
