Another Documentary from Across the Pond

I guess I have a thing for documentaries narrated by people with British accents. This one's about LongHorn Jim and the babies he takes care of--both his lambs and his real children.

Just as a warning, part of this documentary is definitely gross if you ask me. I don't care what people say, birthing is not a beautiful process. But it's just a small part of this excellent short.

I love the different camera angles—the extreme wide shots, the close ups-- and the calm narrative voice. I like the way the story juxtaposes Longhorn Jim’s real children and the lambs he’s taking care of. Sometimes you don’t know which he’s talking about.

It's so well told and well shot. Another great one from FourDocs.
