POR LA VEREA. ROUTES OF TRANSHUMANCE IN ANDALUSIA
Original title POR LA VEREA. LOS CAMINOS DE LA TRASHUMANCIA
The Pérez guide their flock through Andalusia’s sierras. It’s the transhumance, the seasonal migration of cattle, which a handful of stubborn shepherds don’t resign. Pedro Pérez, his brother Tomás and two more shepherds guide their flock from Sierra Morena to Sierra de Segura, in the province of Jaén (Andalusia). This film documents part of the springtime route of Pérez brothers, whose testimony given “por la verea” (on the path) reveals the anthropological and ecological reasons to continue this practice.
