SHE SHEARS is the New Zealand documentary on five women with a passion for sheep shearing – two of whom are legends, three of whom are stars on the rise.
“When a Kiwi girl sets her heart on becoming a shearer there’s not a lot that’s going to stop her”, as the five women profiled in this lively doco happily testify.
Central Otago’s Pagan Karauria admits it was tough getting a gig at the start, but with her champion dad staunchly behind her, she’s made the shearing shed the focus of her career, not just as a competitive shearer, but as an ace wool sorter and mentor to other young women. Catherine Mullooly, from the King Country, packs her skills for some enterprising OE. With whānau solidly backing them, each of these women strive, more than anything, to better themselves.
Directed and Written by Jack Nicol (feature debut)
