Expanding on the themes of the film, the online experience challenges each participant to reconsider his or her assumptions about technology, food production, and, most critically, man’s place in nature. Episodes of The Aatsinki Season will be released in seasonal installments over the course of a year, coordinated to coincide with the real-time events of the herding schedule.
