'Rams' | Film House, Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center | Film | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice



When: Thu., Dec. 17, 7 p.m. 2015

Brothers Gummi and Kiddi raise sheep on neighboring farms in rural Iceland, but the distance between them is vast. The two men, perennial competitors in an annual contest for best ram, haven’t spoken in 40 years. Directed by Grímur Hákonarson, the fictional 2015 film Rams follows the siblings as they overcome their rivalry to save their ancient breed from a lethal disease. Called “beautifully modulated” with “perfectly paced cutting” by Variety, this pastoral drama picked up awards at both the Cannes and Hamptons International film festivals this year. Movie buffs can indulge their animal instincts at an exclusive Burlington-area screening hosted by the Vermont International Film Foundation.

Price: $5-8; free for Vermont International Film Fountation members.
