Rams is a feature film that was shot in Mount Barker in 2018-19. It is the story of two estranged brothers whose decades-long feud comes to a head when their sheep flocks face a common threat.

The film is a reinterpretation of Icelandic film Hrutar, which was awarded the Prix Un Certain Regard at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Rams stars Sam Neill and Michael Caton as the brothers, and features Miranda Richardson, Asher Keddie, Wayne Blair and Leon Ford. Sam Neill’s credits include Jurassic Park, Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Sweet Country. Michael Caton starred in The Castle, The Animal and Last Cab to Darwin.

Rams was directed by Jeremy Sims, who also directed Caton in Last Cab to Darwin.

The production was supported by Screen Australia, Screenwest and the Western Australian Regional Film Fund.
