Karim Sayad is at TIFF 2017 to show his film, Of Sheep And Men.
Sixteen-year-old Habib dreams of becoming a veterinarian. Unable to study for his hoped-for profession, he has bought a sheep named El Bouq. His hope is to train the animal to become a fighting champion.
With the Eid celebration fast approaching, Samir who only wants to sell sheep, has a unique opportunity to maximise his profits, as everyone in the country will be buying sheep for slaughter. But for Habib, it’s another story… Will El Bouq become a champion ? Or will he face a more tragic destiny?
Recorded (most of the time) live at Girth Radio.
