Sheep graze in a pasture. They are amusing and somewhat strange to watch. However, it is not until the audio of a phone call begins that the audience understands that something larger is at work. A man on the line asks, “Do you think animals know anything?” Now we watch the sheep with greater interest. Are they reacting? Are they feeling? It is up to the viewer to decide.
Those who are interested in animal behavior will want to watch the sheep in Some Kind of Intimacy.
