First Milk


26th TIDF: World Premiere

Focusing on the rearing of newborn sheep at Mount Pateras  (father) in Attica, Greece, First Milk weaves a sensory narrative on the human-animal connection, exploring the concepts of motherhood, breastfeeding, and orphanhood. Seasons pass, animals are born and die, the film captures the cycle of life: birth, death, rebirth.
