On October 6th, the award-winning documentary film The Shepherdess of the Glaciers will be shown at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. Not only is the film spectacular, but both the film's director (who is also the brother of the star) and the editor of Wild Fibers Magazine will be available for a Q&A session after the screening. Below is a short description of the film:
THE SHEPHERDESS OF THE GLACIERS transports us to the far northern mountains of Ladakh, India, where Tsering, one of the last shepherdesses in this dry and desolate landscape leads her flock of 300 sheep and goats to graze on the Himalayan Plateaus. It is through her brother’s skillful documentation over four seasons that we witness Tsering’s world of loneliness and the unbreakable bond between her and her animals, who all must fight against temperatures plummeting to -40F and the persistent threat of snow leopards. Winner of more than 20 internationally acclaimed film festivals, The Shepherdess of the Glaciers engages viewers with the magnificence of the Himalayan landscape and the vitality of the human spirit.
