She Shears

In the gruelling world of competitive sheep shearing there is no women’s section. Women and men compete together. She Shears is the story of passion, purpose and determination and five women for whom shearing is not just a job.

Presented by Miss Conception films, who focus on female-led stories, this fresh dispatch from the heartland introduces two legendary shearers – and three in the making – as they head for black-shirt glory at the Golden Shears.

While the Golden Shears comperes freestyle with verbal flair on a flying fleece or a kicky ewe, director Jack Nicol applies camera poetry to the agility, strength, skill and rhythmic grace of women wielding blades of steel.
