Shepherds and Butchers

Shepherds and Butchers

A lawyer takes on a case of a prison guard in South Africa who is traumatized by the executions he’s witnessed.

Shepherds and Butchers which had its World Premiere at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival is directed by multi-award winner, Oliver Schmitz (Life, Above All; Paris, Je T’aime) and stars Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominee, Steve Coogan (Philomena), Andrea Riseborough (‘Birdman’, ‘Oblivion’) and talented newcomer, Garion Dowds. The film follows a jaded lawyer, John Weber, who takes on a seemingly hopeless multiple murder case and uncovers scandalous shortcomings in South Africa’s capital punishment system as he mounts a defence for a prison guard traumatized by the executions in which he took part.
