There is a pandemic happening amongst wild sheep. The infectious bacteria known as mycoplasma ovipneumoniae (movi) is a deadly bacteria that is passed from domestic sheep to wild sheep. Enter Dr. Helen Schwantje, the lead wildlife veterinarian for the Government of BC and a sheep farmer. Helen is at the forefront of the battle against Movi. Working with a handful of other passionate scientists and volunteers, they’re doing what they can to try and stop the spread of this infectious disease.

An Original Documentary

We communicate experience through film. We tell stories. Big, small, personal, comical, inspirational. We tell stories about people, about places, and about the connections between each and every one of us. Since we love being outside, we also love it when our films are about wild places – both without, and within. It’s about as simple as that.
