Sweetgrass is a documentary that chronicles "the last ride of the American cowboy." In it, rancher Lawrence Allested and two hired hands lead 3,000 sheep into the Absaroka-Beartooth mountains of Montana for summer pasture. It's shot in the classic observational documentary style, which means there's no narration. Filmmakers Ilisa Barbash and Lucien Castaing-Taylor began shooting in 2001; it took eight years to finish the project.
