"An enthralling local doco."

All it lacks the smell of the shearing shed. Great role models for women—and a salutary lesson for blokes.

Description

Sheep shearing has traditionally been a male dominated industry. In the 1980’s there were over 15,000 fulltime sheep shearers in New Zealand, only 5 of those where female. She Shears follows four female shearers in the buildup to the Golden Shears, the world’s most prestigious shearing competition. For these women, competing requires enormous tenacity and much back-breaking work. Driven by passion and a competitive spirit they strive to take their beloved occupation to the next level. To win the Golden Shears is every shearer’s dream. But for our characters, it’s more of a chance to demonstrate their skills and determination. As the competition draws near, the women must contend with exhaustion, injury and self-doubt – and family obligations are an ever-present demand. Win or lose, heartbreak or joy, what persists is their passion for what they love to do most – shearing.

CRITIC REVIEWS FOR SHE SHEARS

  • “Throw in some gorgeous rural vistas, ornery ovines and inspirational quotes like "you can't rise to low expectations” and “you can't rest on your laurels, or the sheep will destroy you” and the result is an absorbing watch."- James Croot, Stuff.co.nz
