Filmed over 18 months, Addicted to Sheep is director Magali Pettier’s intimate portrait of a year in the life of a tenant farming family who live 1300 feet above sea level in the North-East of England.
Nothing about their lives seems easy, but, fuelled by passion and dedication, Tom, Kay and their three young children aspire to succeed in this beautiful but harsh landscape.
