Atlanta Premier: Shepherdess of The Glaciers
October 6, 2018
Visit the Himalayas without leaving Atlanta! 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 brotherâ€™s skillful documentation over four seasons that we witness Tseringâ€™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. Following the film, there will be a Q&A session with the director, Stanzin Dorjai, and the editor of Wild Fibers magazine, Linda Cortright.
