  • Summer Pasture

    2010. USA/Tibet/China. Directed by Lynn True, Nelson Walker. Co-directed by Tsering Perlo. A stunningly photographed, stirring portrait of a region and a people that are unknown to most of us. The Chinese call this region “5 Most” for its reputation as the highest, coldest, poorest, largest, and most remote area in Tibet. Locho, Yama, and their infant daughter live here as nomads, maintaining a herd of yaks that, in turn, sustains their family. While the world surrounding this four-thousand-year-old culture is rapidly changing, the family is committed to sustaining their traditional existence. But if they want to survive another season, Locho and Yama may have to change after all. In Chinese, Tibetan; English subtitles. 86 min.
