Of Sheep and Men (2017)

Karim Sayad, Algeria

Algiers, Bab el Oued, 2016. 16-year-old Habib dreams of becoming a veterinarian. But because he has no formal education, he decides to train a ram named 'El Bouq' to become a sheep fight champion. Samir, 42, doesn't have dreams anymore, other than surviving the hardships of daily life by selling sheep. As the Eid celebration approaches, Samir has a unique opportunity to maximize his profits, since everyone in the country will buy a sheep to be slaughtered. But for Habib, it's another story: Will 'El Bouq' become a champion? Or will he face a more tragic destiny?
