Close to Heaven

(Dem Himmel ganz nah)
Titus Faschina

Dumitru Stanciu is one of the last mountain shepherds of Europe. As his forefathers did for thousands of years, in summer as in winter he and his herd of sheep roam the far reaches of the Transylvanian Carpathian Mountains, close to the edge of heaven... Vivid stories and fantastic myths, far from the world of today, cinematically narrated over the course of a year.
