ReelEarth: The Green Tie

Posted on 11/13/2018 12:00:00 AM in What We’re Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

Fifteen-year old Phoebe Smailes is not your typical teenager. All week, she studies at boarding school, and returns home each Friday to spend her weekend training her sheep dog. The youngest person to ever win an open trial, Phoebe already boasts national awards, and now has her sights on the most coveted title in New Zealand: the prestigious Green Tie. We follow Phoebe as she prepares for the Tarata Sheep Dog Trials, which could bring her a step closer. How does she fare? We’ll let the film tell the story—but win or lose, there is no question that Phoebe is remarkable.

Produced by Dean Whitehead
