The Didi of Gljev, in the Dalmatian hinterland, are fully-fledged rams and for the duration a day they act and behave as if they were a single magical flock.

This film is part of Carnival King of Europe DVD 7 - THE PASTORAL LEGACY. The living icons of an idealized pastoral past can often be detected behind the masquerade, revealed by the abundance of fleece in the costumes and the tinkling of bells.
