POV’s 24th season continues with the U.S. broadcast premiere of Sweetgrass on Tuesday, July 5, 2011. Check your local listings.

Sweetgrass is a true-life western with the last of modern-day cowboys leading their flock of sheep into the breathtaking and often dangerous Montana mountains for summer pasture. Filmmakers Ilisa Barbash and Lucien Castaing-Taylor present a riveting and poetic portrait of the American West just as one of its traditional ways of life dies out.
