Opening at the Film Forum this weekend: Sweetgrass, directed by Ilisa Barbash and Lucien Castaing-Taylor

Synopsis from the film's website:

This astonishingly beautiful yet unsparing film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed.  The trailer looks amazing:
